Hey all, some shots from our 4 day weekend at the end of Feb. Did loads of walking, about 8 miles a day - Plenty of snow knocking about as well
Walk up to Cwm Idwal, mega cold and windy! dry though
Llyn Idwal Panoramic
then walked up higher to ridge on the right of the lake, could hardly stand up due to the wind - shame the photo doesn't portray the snot running across your face, eyes watering and non feeling of fingers, even in gloves LOL

Dropped back down to the lake and went around up the path towards Devil's Kitchen, path made up of boulders was lost under slush and ice and we lost the path someway up causing us to scramble across the face of the hill, pretty scary but a big achievement once at the top!
Cwm Idwal and Pen yr Ole Wen Panoramic
Headed off to do the Miner's Track, it's one of six paths which go all the way to the summit of Snowdon. We knew we wouldn't make it to the top as weather was low and conditions under foot wouldn't be good enough.

further up the track met another lake

circled the lake and carried on going up but weather closed in, heavy snow settling over the path about 1 inch in 3 mins ~ decided it was best to head back
Craig Penlan to Carnedd Moel
Another route up Snowdon this time the Watkin Path, pretty tough going on the knees, very pretty with waterfalls and rivers though
