Welcome To The National Mountain Sports Centre

A national outdoor centre, nestled in the heart of Snowdonia, North Wales, Plas y Brenin is a centre of sporting excellence and one of the UK’s leading providers of qualifications and skills-based courses. We’ve been at the forefront of outdoor leadership, training and exploration for over 60 years and have built up a unique reputation for providing world class instruction. Our incredible location allows us to run a year round programme of skill development, training and assessment in a range of mountain sports including walking, climbing, mountaineering, paddle sports and mountain biking.
Courses are both residential and non–residential and we can make bespoke courses to meet your needs. We are also a great venue for a wide range of outdoor-focused conferences and symposiums – a key role given we are a national resource for the outdoors. Our bar, open to the public, has one of the best views in Snowdonia!
We work both with individuals as well as organisations and businesses. The centre is operated on behalf of Sport England, somewhat uniquely, by a non-profit educational charity, the Mountain Training Trust.
