The road is still impassable, but despite this a number of vehicles are continuing to try to cross.

Winter Conditions

Prolonged winter conditions experienced so far this year have been rare in recent years, however the message is the same as always.

Remember as well, soft snow is exhausting to walk in, frozen snow is very slippery.
