    Amazing Ice Lady on Snowdon Summit

    23rd October 2014

    During one of the most beautiful recent September nights a stunning ice sculpture was created on the summit of Snowdon to the achievements of women in the workplace.

    Welsh women’s charity Chwarae Teg worked with ice sculptors to build the three-metre high ice maiden on Wales’ highest mountain on one of the most spectacular nights of this year.

    Huge blocks of ice weighing 1,575kg were transported 160 miles from Cwmbran to Llanberis, then Snowdon Mountain Railway took them the last few miles until it was 1085 metres above sea level at the top of Yr Wyddfa / Snowdon.
