Twid Turner

Twid qualified as a mountain guide in 1993 and for many years worked as a senior instructor and head of rock climbing at Plas y Brenin, the National Mountain Centre in Capel Curig. More recently he moved to Villar in Switzerland, where he now lives with his wife Louise (also a guide) and their daughter – mixing guiding and family life with his passion for skiing and mountaineering.  A prolific and extremely gifted climber, Twid has completed an incredible 50 expeditions to the Greater Ranges, making hard first ascents all over the globe.  This enduring enthusiasm for the mountains is something that he brings to his work as a guide, being cheerful, enthusiastic, always ready with a joke and constantly keen to impart his experience and knowledge.
