Brecon Mountain Rescue Team were called out twice this weekend to snow related incidents.

On Friday, 1 March, the team received a callout to a stranded driver in Heol Senni by Dyfed-Powys Police, who asked the team to respond to the situation to ensure the welfare of a driver who was unable to progress due to snow.

A spokesperson from the mountain rescue team said: “A colleague from Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team located car and driver and with the assistance of Brecon team member’s guided them to a safe and passable road.”

The following day on Saturday, 2 March the team were called out to a walker who had slipped many times on the descent from Corn Du in the snowy and icy conditions.

The mountain rescue team assisted the walker back down to the Storey Arms car park.

The team issued some tips for walking in snowy conditions, they said: “The snow line is currently down to the main Pen Y Fan car parks so all routes up in to the hills are snowy and icy.

“Conditions require good foot wear with decent treads. Walking poles and spikes may also be beneficial. Most importantly the ability and knowledge of walking in snowy conditions is required. Always be prepared to turn back if you are unsure. Carrying extra warm clothing, food drink and a polythene survival bag or emergency shelter is advisable.”
