Car Park Status Updates

The Pen y Pass pre-booking pilot scheme has come to an end for this season. In addition, the car park status updates have also come to an end for the time being.

Over the last few months, Eryri has faced significant challenges in its re-opening and welcoming of visitors back to the area.

The Authority, in line with its core purpose of protecting Eryri’s landscapes, wildlife and communities, will give full consideration to these challenges as we develop a long-term solution to the scenes seen over the summer.

What will happen over the winter?

We continue to encourage the responsible use of Snowdonia and the area. Pen y Pass car park will operate a pay and display system. You will need to use another car park if Pen y Pass is full. We encourage the use of greener transport when visiting Snowdonia. The Snowdon Sherpa Park and Ride service is a great way to access most of Snowdonia's popular destinations.

Where can I get the latest Snowdon Sherpa timetable?

Gwynedd Council have a dedicated Snowdon Sherpa page with access to all the latest timetables.

How will the Authority ensure that transport problems do not happen again?

The Authority will develop a long-term plan and solution with a view to implementing said plan as soon as possible. Furthermore, Snowdonia's transport situation will be constantly monitored and appropriate action taken on the basis of the situation.

The Authority would like to thank its wardens, staff and volunteers along with its partners at Gwynedd Council and North Wales Police for their support over the summer.
