Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

GWYNDRE GLACIER *
* shaped by glacial action, but not a glacier

Against the paint streaked peaks an ascension of kites soaring, stalling, falling from the sky.
Sheep grazing, a languid thoroughness, cropping the green baize of the hillside,
wild Welsh mountain ponies, their tails and manes sailing on the wind.
The thrum of farm machinery in fields near and far.

The shadowline of dry stone walling a sharp melt,
on the undulating landscape a flag laid out on the contours,
a Rorschach of green and white
and me the red

ON A COLD AND FROSTY MORNING

A wonderful transition from a frosted to roasted NE Face of Pen-y-Fan and Cwm Sere at sunrise this morning

IF CANDIDE CAN

Derek the Weather said there'd be snow
On higher ground Tuesday night. Rain down low.
Then cold, icy and clear on Wednesday morning
With showers by nightfall, without warning.

From the car park the peaks looked as white as the stars,
Which pinpricked the indigo from here out to Mars.
We walked up in darkness under the waning moon's stare,
The breeze light and warm, the conditions set fair.

We talked as we walked, the brothers and me,
Green fields, rolling hills, was all we could see.
From the Bwlch Duwynt saddle we saw all around
The whiteness was lunar lit frost on the ground.

It was 'One Of Those Days' with more grass than snow
But I'd carted my stuff up there and still wanted to go
Skiing on the flanks of Southern Britain's highest peaks
Who knew when it would snow next, it could be weeks.

So suited and booted, goggles on face
I pushed off from a standstill, slowly gathering pace.
The frost crystals crashing off the tails of my skis,
Grass hurtling skyward, caught on the breeze.

The hiss of the schuss like a thousand tyres deflated
Pulling up, still standing, feeling elated.
My eleventh day turning on the Brecon Beacons' peaks
Are the skis put away now for the summertime weeks?
