Snowdonia Ground Conditions

Covid-19 update 23:03: Because of the current situation with Covid-19 we have decided to bring this service to an end earlier this year. Please make yourself aware of the government's advice. No unnecessary travel and social distancing. We look forward to welcome you back to the mountains when this challenging period is over.

This report is completed on a regular basis through the winter months by Snowdonia National Park Wardens and gives indicative information on snow/ice conditions underfoot in the Snowdonia area as a whole.

Remember, mountaineering is an activity with inherent risks, when out on the hills you should be aware of and accept these risks and take responsibility for your own decisions, prepare well and enjoy the adventure!

Walking in the uplands during the winter can require additional equipment and skills and it is important that you are prepared for this in order to enjoy hill walking safely. More details can be found at
