The Snowdonia Society is offering winter walks in some popular areas of the national park, including Cadair Idris on December 20th.
According to the society, wintry weather conditions are expected and those booking a place on the trek are advised to bring the right sort of outdoor clothing
Men's winter jackets
or women's winter jackets
could be very useful things to wear, while carrying a walking pole
may also help on both the ascent and the descent.Walking gear
like crampons may be needed, the body advises.
Snowdonia Society members can join the walk for free, while non-members have been invited to donate £3.
Walk leader Alan Pugh said: "It will be a refreshing alternative to Christmas shopping, but feel [free] to pack some mince pies as we plan to take a break in the old summit hut."
At 2,930 ft (893 m), Cadair Idris is the highest peak in the south of the national park, with Y Lliwedd (2,946 ft / 898 m) and the 15 peaks over 3,000 ft being situated further north.
