Snowdon facility set for upgrade
Bookmark and Share
The Pen y Pass facilities at the top of the Llanberis Pass in Snowdonia are to undergo a major upgrade, the national park authority has said.

With the current tenant leaving, the facilities will be closed from December 1st until early next summer, it revealed.

The authority is seeking to bring in a new occupant to run the cafe and other facilities - which includes a shop and toilets - and is hoping to enhance the provision of services to walkers and other visitors.

Property manager for the national park Peter Trumper stated: "Pen y Pass will see some major changes within the next five years. Our intention is to upgrade the facilities making it much more accessible to all users."

Winter walkers up Snowdon may wish to invest in some backpacks that can carry extra food once the cafe is closed.

Pen y Pass is the start point for three routes up Snowdon - the Pyg Track, the Miner's Path and Crib Goch, with the latter forming part of the Snowdon Horseshore route that also takes in Garnedd Ugain, Snowdon's summit and Y Lliwedd.
