Snowdon and its surrounding peaks are ably looked after by the Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team based in the small village of Nant Peris. The team is made up of a group of volunteers with the simple aim to help those in need in the mountains around Snowdon. The area draws in 700,000 visitors each year and as the popularity of mountain walking continues to grow, so does the number of incidents they’re called out to averaging between 180-210 incidents annually.

Call outs vary from a twisted ankle or overdue persons on easy paths to serious accidents or fatalities on cliffs and steep ground. The response provided by the team might involve assistance by a handful of members or depending on conditions, seriousness and location, it may involve the majority of the team. On more complicated incidents the team may request support from the neighbouring rescue teams and also the Coastguard Search & Rescue helicopter.
