Excellent selection of well built and challenging trails. Grading is justified. Blue here is DH blue in UK terms, or a regular European blue and would be more like a black in any normal English or maybe Welsh trail centre (have yet to do any Scottish riding so can't compare there). Trails are designed so you can progress with skills from blue to black and depending how fast you run them and the options you take, the air you get (and you will get air in places whether you try or not). Very efficient uplift. Next bus is always there just as you get to the base. Nice grub in the slate cavern cafe (not been since they've built the new centre). Bouncy AM or DH bike recommended, full face and armour for full fun. If you've been to Bike Park Wales and thought that was good, Stiniog is several levels better than that in what you get out of a day. Book the uplift for the day.

Good Points
Great trails. Challenging. Accurate grading and good for DH beginner to expert. Efficient uplift. Many runs in a day. Good facilities. Ideal to progress skills.
Bad Points
Hard to think of any. Bit bleak, but that's the charm of Blaenau Ffestiniog. Cold at the top on a windy cold day, but fine when you get moving.
