Snowdon is of course always worth visiting in the snow. At 3,560 feet, it is likely to have at least a smattering at this time of year. We didn’t plan to go to the summit, just to see some lakes. However, we did end up ascending higher than we planned, and until the visibility dropped to almost nothing there was some interesting lines in the ice to look at. We took a stroll on the ‘Miner’s Track’, as it meanders through several lakes- Llyn Teyrn, Llyn Lldaw, and Glaslyn. In Welsh folklore, King Arthur asked Bedivere to throw Excalibur into Glaslyn. Although we didn’t see it on this occasion, it does seem a place where you could lose something forever if you wanted to (there was heavy mist on this part of the walk, so we could hear people walking through the snow past us, but we couldn’t see them!).
