Some good reports from Raise and weardale this week.

Indeed it’s been a notable week for UK snowsports because for the first time in (how long ?) Everyone of the 10 uk real snow ski areas have been operational at least once Cool

Yad moss weardale and Allenheads ran on Sunday. Big drifts right along the tow line were pisted out at Yad moss. Snow hard packed but ok. Only really one run skiable however we should get a bit more tomorrow and don’t need much. Hopefully open again later in the week.

Took a walk up to one of Several ‘ghost’ ski tows in the Pennines. This one was the former Teesdale ski club tow located near the Langdon Beck hotel. The tow is marked on the old 1:25,000 map. It was about 350m long with a wire rope Skullie the summit is at about 600m.

Must have been a nice little bowl to ski in. Now just some sad remains haunted by the skiers of yesteryear. Sad

Finally getting some snow that isn't accompanied by a westerly gale. Laughing

Southerly is good at Yad Moss. Across the fences. More tomorrow, again with a southerly gale force wind and then a rise just above freezing.

Good possibilities for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Getting a bit mild after Sunday lunch time.

Just had a lovely ski around the gallops above our town.

Lovely refrozen snow perfect for making progress on cross country skis. Clear night sky and inky blackness towards the Dales. lights all the way down the vale of Mowbray and over towards Teesside. Hope none of the neighbours spotted me schussing down our street and back into the garage. Madeye-Smiley

Meanwhile up at Yad Moss tonight......

Big drifts at Yad Moss

Plenty at Weardale by the look of it.

Yad Moss and Raise will run tomorrow. We may need to do some digging at YM , unless the piste basher driver puts in another night shift !

Hope to run Saturday too.

Yes kitenski, All those hours spent hanging

Nice day at the Moss today. Only the main run complete but it is good. Powder gulley is mostly complete but it’s a bit of a grassy walk to get there. A bit more snow falling overnight. The tow will run tomorrow.

Over at Raise they were digging out today but did ski I think by afternoon.

A lovely afternoon at Yad Moss. Only the main run is complete but it is excellent and has been well pisted.
If we get a decent easterly prospects could be very good.

Raise however is in another league. Deep wide cover across savages and presidents. A trench for the tow is now having to be dug out every time it snows. Should come through the mild spell relatively intact. Then cold again. The season is going well.
