The car park at Pen Y Pas in Snowdonia has been cleared of snow by the national park authority.
Winter walkers and climbers had been seeking to use the unusually harsh weather for seasonal activities, but snowfall had made parking at the site impossible and this led to cars being left by the roadside and causing traffic hold-ups.
Now this has been cleared, those who wish to go walking
can do so, although now may be a good time to invest in men's winter jackets
or women's winter jackets
, as well as new climbing gear
for those looking to take on some winter routes.
However, a warning has been given to watch out for places where avalanches are possible.
The Pen Y Pas car park is a popular starting point for ascents of Snowdon via the Pyg Track, Miner's Path and Crib Goch routes.
Other local peaks such as Y Lliwedd, Glyder Fach and Glyder Fawr can also be climbed from the locality.
