Only about 1cm of snow fell yesterday night and so today the main facilities will all open at 10.00am as per usual and closing time will be at 4.30 pm.

The Forest Drive and Butser Hill car parks remain closed as they are still covered in a good deal frozen snow and ice.   The Park has 1.5 miles of tarmac road, much of it on slopes and as a consequence these two areas will have to wait for the thaw.

Simply gritting around the main facilities and car park areas can take half a tonne of salt/grit each time we get a good freeze. At a cost of £100 a time the impact of a prolonged cold spell can be considerable. 

For regular weather updates contact reception from 10.00am on 02392 595040.
