Steve Nash Red Bull X-Alps Talk Sticky

Jan
07

Many thanks to Steve for his fascinating talk about the 2015 Red Bull X-Alps. The talk was attended by many club members and their partners- all were enthralled to hear of Steve's exploits!

Those of you who were unable to attend might like to donate to the charity Steve and Richard have selected to receive the proceeds of their talks- Red Bull Wings for Life. This is a charity committed to funding cutting edge research into spinal cord injury, with a view to curing this dreadful affliction.

Welcome Sticky

Welcome to the New Snowdonia Sky Sports website.

About The Club

We are a group of hang glider and now more predominantly paraglider pilots, who fly in North West Wales. We are a club for qualified flyers- if you want to learn try one of the BHPA schools such as the nearby Snowdon Gliders.

Formed as a club in 1990 by pioneering pilots such as John Silvester we have always been passionate about flying being free and open for all.

The area under Snowdonia Sky Sports stewardship ranges from Barmouth along the A496 to Dolgellau, via Bala on the A494 onto Druid where it meets the A5, from here it tracks WNW following the A5 to Betws y Coed, then North up the A470 to Conwy and includes all areas west including Anglesey and the Lleyn Peninsula.
