ROAD CONDITIONS – The road is likely to have snow increasing through the day, likely 2WD vehicles will be required to fit chains. ALL vehicles proceeding past the park registration area must carry chains. Take care parking your cars in the plateau car park as this remains to have some snowy areas. Drive to the conditions and keep a sensible distance between cars. Please follow the directions of the Parks Rangers. If you are driving a car you not only need to have chains, you need to know how to fit them and how to drive your car whist they are on. For more information on chains visit the snowsafe website. More road updates as they are available through the day
