There were just four on BB Winter Venture this year, but they had a great time in the Brecon Beacons! The weather was just right for walking, with clear skies and snow on the ground. An extra highlight was visiting the Sgud ar Eira falls, and being able to walk behind them.

The Bunkhouse, run by the Chichester Youth Adventure Trust, was warm and welcoming. This was really appreciated, especially the first night when we arrived in the dark, with snow falling! The facilities were great, and as usual games and cooking (and of course eating!) occupied much of the time.
