Friday 18 January: As forecast yesterday (see HERE), the weather has turned and brought wind and some rain which has turned to snow at altitude.

This is likely to be repeated several times over the next few days and possibly weeks so before going up into the National Park it’s best to check the Cabildo’s real-time map of the situation on the roads here. The map is HERE.
