Tourists in Wales stuck in pub for five days with snow on top

A bizarre tail of snowy snow left dozens of tourists stranded for days at a remote pub in Wales. When Llechwedd Mountain School weather forecasters warned that the snow was set to arrive, a group of people hoping to visit Snowdonia National Park travelled to Caslermond Wharf pub, which is only a few miles outside the ski resort.

The snow dumped on the area on Saturday, March 24, and stayed for five days. Many skiers and snowboarders became stranded on the mountain slopes near the hotel and told the BBC. They had to wait for the snow to disappear before starting their journey back home.

Now that the snow has started to melt, hotel manager Les Gibb said the group could be in for yet another wait. “I can’t afford to lose any more time,” he told The Guardian. “We’ve got only a few more days of walkies to go. Otherwise we are going to be coming home.”

The group had been planning to go on a hike until the mild conditions stopped them. Now that the snow has melted, the hotel is allowing guests to return, though they will need to purchase extra tickets online.

While it was nice to finally see the snow melt, locals might be a little skeptical after one visitor tweeted a photo taken near Caslermond Wharf showing muddy rocks in the park.
