Tickets & Running Times

Running Times


PLEASE READ THIS BIT !!!!! (updated 16.12.2014)

Starting from Friday12th December 2014, the uplift will run as follows. On Wednesdays and Saturdays it will run on the Y Mynydd/Twrch side of the valley. On Fridays and Sundays it will run on the Pedalhounds and Cafall side of the valley. We will not be uplifting both sides of the valley in the same day. When running on the Pedalhounds/Cafall side, the uplift pick up point is at the barrier by the bottom of the Pedalhounds track. So you will need to drive past the visitor centre and follow the road until you get to this barrier, then park your car on the side of the road. The uplift will not be collecting people from the main carpark on these days. Until Friday 12th December, we will continue to uplift only on the Y Mynydd/Twrch side. 


Day Tickets

£27.50 - Midweek

£31.50 - Weekends - Bank Holidays

With a day ticket you can use the uplift all day, giving you up to 11 runs in the day. There are 16 day tickets available each day. Turn around time between runs is normally around 35-40 minutes.

*During the winter when it gets dark early, you will get around 8 uplifts, depending on what time of year it is.

The uplift stops for 45 minutes at lunchtime, nomally after the first 5 uplifts.

If the road to the Y Mynydd DH track becomes inaccessible due to ice, snow or surprise forestry operations, we may swap to the Pedalhounds side with out notice. 


Don't forget your carpark money, cash only £1.00 for 2 hours, then £3.00 all day.

5x Single Trip Ticket, £15

Five single trip tickets (given as a wristband) are only available on the day from the uplift driver and cannot be pre-booked. They are ideal during the week, when the uplift is not fully booked out and you only want a few runs or don't wan't to spend all day here. 

You can only use this ticket if there is space on the bus, as priority is always given to riders with a day ticket. So if you want a few sneaky runs over a busy weekend, you will have more chance of getting on if you arrive in time for the first uplift, or in the late afternoon once riders start to drop off, normally 4pm onwards.

There is no time limit to use this ticket, so if you don't use all 5 uplifts, just come back another day to use the others. We can only accept cash on the day for this ticket as we don’t have credit card facilities on site.

Single Trip Ticket, £3.50

Single trips are the same as above, but sold individually, pay as you go.
