At the top of the Pass of Llanberis in Snowdonia, under the watchful gaze of Crib Goch and below the slopes of Snowdon itself, is the Pen y Pass youth hostel. George Mallory stayed here while training for his ill-fated Everest expedition (the bar is named after him), and every year hordes of walkers pass through its doors, either on their way to, or back from, the summit of Snowdon via the Pyg and Miners' Tracks which start from outside its doors..
And now the hostel needs your help.
They are running a series of 4-day working holidays at YHA Snowdon Pen y Pass to spruce the hostel up for the new year. Tasks will include painting and decorating of bedrooms and the public areas.
Each working holiday will run from Monday to Friday on the weeks commencing 8th, 15th and 22nd January. Experienced painters and decorators are welcome but don't worry if you don't have much experience as any training you need will be given on the day. Accommodation is provided free of charge in single gender shared rooms. This working holiday is self-catering so you will need to take food with you.
