The next trip to get over the disappointment would see us following the Beacons way from the layby opposite Storey arms over to Craig Cerrig Gleisiad and then onto Fan Frynych to ski off down to near Pen Rhos where K's brother and wife would pick us up and return us to the start for the car!

We soon left the crags and headed for the summit of Fan Frynych. The view down towards Brecon was awesome and the descent looked like it was going to be great fun! We first had a hot chocolate and put on the Rab's to try and stop the cold taking more of a hold on us!! It certainly felt like the depths of winter!

The descent was on a wide path that had deep drifting snow in it! It was powder all the way down! We soon reached a land rover track which again was filled with drifting snow creating a great off piste ski! It was a little sketchy with the flat light! The light soon began to fade as we hit the forest road at the bottom. From here it was a straight line dash to the A470 where Neil and Yvonne had been waiting getting a little worried about where we were! Yet another great trip on the skis, next stop was the Scottish mountains and Glenshee.
