These are the lift served real ski areas in the North Pennines and Lake District;

Raise, Helvellyn Massif, Lake District
http://www.ldscsnowski.co.uk/

Yad Moss, Alston Moor, North Pennines
http://www.yadmoss.co.uk/

Weardale, North Pennines
http://www.skiweardale.com/

Allenheads, North Pennines
http://ski-allenheads.co.uk/


Last year was a poor season but there was still 8 lift served days at Yad Moss and 20 at Raise. The first skiing in late November was excellent and was reported extensively including in the Times.

Season passes are now on sale at Raise and Yad Moss. A junior season pass (under 18 at Yad Moss is £10. At Raise it is free but juniors must be registered and accompanied by an adult skier.

Adult season passes are £60 at Raise and £55 at Yad Moss, although there is a £10 reduction on that for returning Members.

I’ll post some info and pictures below over the next month or so about pre season news. Is anyone able to comment about news from Allenheads, Weardale or perhaps the Lowther Hills ?

All the best for a great season.

And fingers crossed we all start sliding in November like last winter.

Weardale passes now on sale to existing members, who have until the end of October (?? I think??) to renew at the discounted price (£10 reduction) of about £35.

After that it's open to new members.

We managed about 8 days at Weardale and Yad Moss last winter - a mix of lift served but mainly ski touring with the lifts closed. Some pretty marginal cover as PeterS has alluded to - but nevertheless always nice to be on proper snow only an hour from home.

Got up to Raise as well for a day last November, which realised an ambition of mine to ski at the Lakes. Mrs MA & I joined the club on the day - but then unfortunately didn't manage to get up there any more after that. Currently undecided on whether to renew....

I seem to remember O-level geography dealt with the 'rain shadow' so at least that hasn't changed Toofy Grin

It's been such a wet Summer here overall, apart from the odd day here and there it's been cloudy and raining since late July Shocked
