Our access road is open. Chains are to be carried by all vehicles, although this may change throughout the day with developing weather conditions. Please be vigilant and drive with extra caution, keep to the speed limit, drive with headlights on and give way to uphill traffic while driving on our mountain access road.
**** As most of the snow has disappeared from our Alpine road we are down to the bedrock and it is a bit rough – we apologise for this. We will be doing major road repairs this summer. And at the moment we have our road crew patching up where we can.
If you do not have Chains or do not want to drive up the mountain road we do have a shuttle available from the bottom carpark
