Winter is coming.
Cold, dark and it wants to eat you up.
You get up later, think later, and the world is ruled by …
blankets and tea.
Are you too?
You’re waiting for the first snow.
You sit by the window for hours, cry eyes out when the temperature rises, even buy the white carpet …
It’s still not here. (Yes, these are places on earth without snow yet!)
Time to visit North Wales! Your first snow will certainly be in its mountains.
And here it is! Small, white, soft… Just as you imagined! It’s just waiting for your steps. Snowdonia National Park (as the name suggests) turned out to be a good choice once again. Snow knows, however, it has the advantage and can disappear at any time. So make sure to PROPERLY enjoy it … Here are 6 ways how to do so!
1) DELAY THE FIRST MEETING AS LONG AS YOU CAN
You’ve reached the destination. You see the snow on the tops of mountains. You’ve been waiting so long … But wait a little more. The joy at the first meeting will be even greater! So choose the longest path from parking to the summit, lose the trail (which doesn’t exist anyway) and make sure to add jumping over streams. If that’s not enough, try slackline somewhere around. All in the name of higher good.
2) FIND THE BEING THAT SEE SNOW THE FIRST TIME IN LIFE
If you have in your possession a puppy who had never seen snow, take him/her. If not – teddy bears or imaginary friends are good too. Look at their joy/ surprise and share the feeling!
3) TAKE A DEEP LOOK
Because the views are amazing! These duvet-covered mountains, sugar iced slopes, a kaleidoscope of colors … Now you can be a poet.
4) REACH THE SUMMIT
Because that’s the way you’ll fully enjoy your first snow in Welsh mountains! Path covered with snow is great fun. And way different to the summer! One advice – try not to fall too many times … (but at least one fall is required).
5) GO FOR CONTRAST
The first snow tastes better if you experience it in autumn. Fortunately, in Welsh mountains it is quite possible. In the lower parts you enjoy autumn landscape, and a few moments later the winter with the snow!
You no longer have to sit by the window. The snow is waiting and you know where… Go and truly enjoy it!
Has the first snow already fallen in your area?
