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 :-)

Fresh powder, sunshine and top to bottom sliding at Storey Arms today!

I was there on Tuesday and whilst it was fun (Always is!), I was debating coming back the next day because there was only 'a couple light snow showers' forecast. So thought i'd set my alarm nice and early and check twitter to see if there was any new snow in the usual places. Turned out the A470 between Brecon and Merthyr was closed due to treacherous driving conditions.. so I headed straight for it! There was quite extensive snow cover as far west as Carmarthen but once I past Halfway (just outside Llandovery), it was starting to look like there'd been quite a heavy fall in the hills! Got to Storey Arms at 7.30 and I was expecting to see dozens of cars parked on the side of the road but there wasn't a person in sight!

Fantastic day out!

Forecast is for a short mild spell Friday/Saturday (freezing level 1500-2000m) before a return to colder than average conditions. Models seem to be pointing towards Northerly/North Westerly winds rather than Beast from the East stuff. Whilst this probably won't lead to those widespread sub-zero maximum days, I think it could be quite snowy for the mountains with showers coming in off the Atlantic! Fingers crossed snowHead

@Mouse555, Great stuff Very Happy .
I remember that bouncy feeling as the ankle-deep snow seems to bounce on top of the moorland grass beneath - feels deeper than it really is. It'a fantastic feeling to ski on home ground Very Happy
Well done!

Yeah it's a lot of fun with a bit of fresh snow, and as Mike said it doesn't need much because it's quite grassy. There's some nice little jumps in the middle as well but i'm sure you could make some bigger ones if you're into that stuff snowHead

Looks like there could be some heavy falls on Tuesday and Thursday/Friday in the South down to pretty low levels.

What's the best way to get to Storey Arms from the west when there's snow about? I usually go through Llandovery/Sennybridge but parts of that route look like a death trap in the snow! Is it better to take the big roads towards Hirwaun and go up through Penderyn?

The Penderyn section is the worst in my opinion.

A465 to Merthyr, and then A470 to Storey Arms.

I'm going to try Storey Arms tomorrow morning. Thursday looks like potential for even more snow so Friday/Saturday look awesome if it's not all blown off the mountain!

I'd try get there early on the weekend because if there's snow about, everybody's up there thinking they're Edmund Hillary and it's a pain to park Laughing


That was 1pm this afternoon. Think they've had a bit more snow since but i'm not expecting it to be as good as last Wednesday because there's no base underneath the fresh snow this time.

Great updates and good to see! Agree it is potentially looking good for Friday or the weekend. Fingers crossed for Saturday for me - I will probably be on the North side as easier access for me, assuming no drifted snow in the lanes. Rob

well, after good snow most of night, set off at nine this morning,. windy thus windswept snow, a good drift built up on side of path, so after reaching a windy first ridge, I kitted up and skied back down the path about 3/4 way, hiked back up, down again 3/4 way path then a traverse and through the rougher grasses, down to the bottom bridge. although not the snow I hoped for but a good day had.

any suggestion for a trip tomorrow sat

Chucked the skis in the car to see if there’s anything going after this morning’s MTB. Not a lot of snow at all in lower valleys (Risca); perhaps in rain shadow of the Beacons? Will take a drive towards pen y fan to see if there’s much to go at this afternoon...

Not as much new snow as I was expecting but enough to get from top to carpark! Seems a lot more snow fell further south in Devon/Cornwall and possibly further east - Black mountains? Bumped into Stevie.J and there was a few other skiers/boarders up there as well. Great fun as always.. just a shame there's no lifts to take you back to the top Very Happy I couldn't go Saturday which is a shame because I think the weather was a bit better.

Looks like the next couple weeks will be fairly mild but we'll see!

Has anyone got a recommendation for a car park that works for the black mountains (Waun Fach) and is accessible shortly after a dump? I was looking around Pengenfford. I'm guessing Gospel Path would need chains / winter tyres to reach.

Lots of people out in North Wales this weekend. We headed up into Cwm LLoer on Carnedd Dafydd for a few turns on the east facing head wall of the cwm, a partial ascent of Y gully and a lovely skin up to the ridge of Cefn Ysgolion Duon and a lovely fast ski back down. It did involve a bit of combat skiing, a couple of stream crossings and some very wet feet.
