SR: SKI WALES - 2017/18 Winter Season in the Brecon Beacons & Snowdonia National Parks

Here we go again and the Stereophonics say it better than anyone

"There's no mistake
I smell that smell
It's that time of year again
I can taste the air
The clocks go back
Railway track
Something blocks the line again
And the train runs late for the first time"

Stereophonics - Local Boy In The Photograph

Opening Day in the Brecon Beacons National Park was 19 November last season and snow-forecast and the Met Office are calling for wintry showers and heavy snow from Saturday (02 November 2017).

Looks like the heavy precipitation will be accompanied by high winds in excess of 70 km/h and the freezing level will be crucial.

As it always is.

A sunrise mission on Tuesday 05 November 2017 could be the go at this stage

That song is powerful juju.

Transports me straight back to south Wales in the 90s and lots of young people topping themselves. A hymn for them.

A good segment there. The calendar shot works well too. I was planning on a serious siege of "surf snowdonia" in the next few months; perhaps I should take a snowboard too.

On the other hand, the snow looks pretty unfriendly.

And now I know what that song was all about...

Indeed it is. Darker than the chorus suggests.

Opening stanza nails the anticipation of winter for me though.

I'd take it. You never know. And it's not always scratchy.

@philwig, Turn right just before Surf Snowdonia and you head up to a car park from which you can walk in. Give us a shout if you do.
