  B E W A R E ....................... !!!
Car Parking in Snowdonia is very limited and can be expensive if a space can be found

The alternative is to leave your car behind and use the
Snowdon Sherpa Bus network

PROVISIONAL..........
So far,  no announcement has been made about the Sherpa service
for Winter 2018-2019

In order to give an idea of what to expect,  at this stage it is assumed
alternate "S2" services will be withdrawn.....
ie - onward connections at Pen-y-Pass for Betws-y-Coed and Llanberis
along with the last "S4" journeys through the Nant Gwynant Pass
- similar to last winter

This "unofficial" website attempts to show what is still available

and to encourage greater use includes some suggested
"trips round Snowdonia - without your car"
