overview of winter Hill Mast and Winter Hill from the Blue Lagoon
note from dad:
weather Cold , no wind , very icy,
weather between 3 and -3c is probably the most unpredictable and leads to high risk conditions and on the road's as there is varying combination's of water and ice ,
the road leading to this area was covered in patches of both white and black ice -use cold weather tyres
we were going to combine this run with a climb up the waterfall , the wet black icy conditions meant this was unsafe in the dark -there is always another day :)
we use cold weather tyres and have done so when we lived abroad , I will continue to use them in this country for the following reasons, these are based upon safety , I wouldn't go out fell running or exploring without the correct equipment, so why your car ?
this is from the Mercedes site
although my car isn't a Mercedes ;)
