There’s a huge amount of adventuring to do in our National Parks, but that’s no secret… the secret is how good it is. Snowdonia has long been known for high quality climbing, but the adventures on offer go far beyond the crags. It has some of the best quality whitewater rivers in the UK, with standing waves, scenic floats and waterfall filled gorges; while bike tracks fall through the forests of nearly every village. This winter though, spare time and limited travel has opened up another of Snowdonia’s secrets: skiing. Free heels have been kick turning their way to Snowdonia’s powder stashes.
In the past year people have sought space and connection. Our National Parks hold onto the last bits of our wild country, and remind us of how the water should taste and the air should smell. But they are also under threat. An untapped well, being looked at with greedy eyes.
We can’t forget why we need these places: our National Parks are how the world remembers itself.
