Access Road Chains on all vehicles
All vehicles will need to put their chains on @ Bowater Motor Group Chain Station #3. Chains must be carried at all times, by all vehicles as road conditions can change quickly during the day. Please be aware that the Valley Fords may be very icy, extra care required.

Please use caution, obey all road signage and directions from staff while driving on the mountain road, and take care on the Valley Road while entering and exiting the fords.
We have a shuttle service operating from the bottom car park for those of you who don’t have chains or do not wish to drive up mountain road.
