This weekend sees the legendary Dyfi Winter Warm Up return to Corris for its sixth year. Respected and revered, Warm Up features an interesting mix of lycra-clad pro teams starting the season hard and Gore-Tex'd up warriors out to battle the elements. And this year in Corris, the elements are well dug in. Last night saw -5C in the valley, and General Slate and his crew have been hard at work piste-ing the slopes to perfection. 

Sadly, I can't ride this year, but I will be parked up at the Craft Centre on Sunday morning. If you are interested in a weekend break later in the year, please come and say hello.

PS. The Craft Centre Cafe does a great cappuccino and fine cake. You're an athlete. You deserve it.
