Plas y Brenin outdoor centre re-opens as lockdown ends

Now that lockdown has lifted in Wales, the outdoor centre Plas y Brenin is now re-open.

It’s a welcome relief for all of the guides and mountain leaders who operate here, but they can only get back on their feet with the support of of us – and that means booking a day of outdoor activity and adventure with them .

For the time being, Plas y Brenin is taking bookings for private instruction and family/household groups from Monday 13th July, so it’s an ideal time to get some one-to-one instruction.

The main centre will remain closed to the public for now, so all of the activities will be run from their Bryn Engan site, just a five minute walk away.

Choose from a going on a guided mountain walk, to a rock climb, abseil, stand-up paddleboarding, canoeing, kayaking or guided mountain biking.

If there’s an activity you’ve been wanting to do for a long time, but putting it off, then now’s the time to do it.

Ruth Hall is the chief executive at Plas y Brenin and says that many outdoor lovers will have had adventures planned that they’ve been forced to put on hold.

She adds: “We’ve certainly missed welcoming customers to Snowdonia to teach them essential outdoor skills and share some incredible experiences with them. We couldn’t be more excited to announce our reopening from Monday 13th July, with a raft of new safety measures in place to ensure the continued safety of all.”

Since 1997, Plas y Brenin has been operated on behalf of Sport England by the Mountain Training Trust, a not-for-profit charity founded by the British Mountaineering Council, Mountain Training UK and Mountain Training England.

The charity was founded specifically to run the centre, and in doing so ensure the continued delivery of world-class training while encouraging more people to get active in the outdoors, regardless of their abilities or experience.
