Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

The Northern Powderhouse: Allenheads, Raise, Weardale and Yad Moss. 2020 - 2021

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Time to start a new thread. Last season had some good skiing, particularly at altitude in the Lake District but also some good, if limited days across the other side of the eden valley up in the NorthPennines.

At Yad Moss Season tickets are now on sale for the coming winter. Price £55 for new adult members and £10 for juniors. Returning adult Season Ticket holders only pay £40.
Day tickets will normally be available on the hill for £20 (£10 for juniors) unless a very busy day is anticipated in which case they may be restricted to online sales the night before.

All the clubs cooperate with each other and in previous years have offered reciprocal discounts on day tickets to season ticket holders. Here are the links:

Let’s hope for snow from the east as well as the west this year.

North and south would be good too - we're not too fussy! Anything will do! Laughing

I know what you mean though Peter S
- Yad Moss was particularly memorable when the Beast from the East filled Hen Gill Gully for brilliant skiing back down to the road...

Fingers crossed, we could be on for our first Pennines slide in only two months' time.... wink

Re. Weardale parking Grizzler (from query in 2019-20 conditions thread): You are correct in that the layby at the gate to the ski hill gets full quickly - maybe 10 cars Puzzled

After that, cars park down the hill - at an angle, facing into the wire fence on the left (ie driving in forwards). Snow can be deep against the fence - hence the need to dig a space. The membership rules stipulate that visitors must park in that way. However, I've still seen chaos and the road blocked with cars trying to turn round, reverse in etc...

On a busy day, cars can end up parked all the way to the bridge/bend at the bottom of the hill - which can be a good ski back down Very Happy

You're right in that the last thing you want (in either direction) is to meet an oncoming vehicle on the single-track road Shocked Passing places are virtually non-existent apart from farm gates - I've had to reverse uphill for 'miles' before....

If you park at the chain-fitting layby on the road from Daddry Shield, someone will always give you a lift up to the slopes - well at least in non-covid times... Confused

50 years of Weardale ski club.

What a great story. Lots of digging, construction and so many amazing vehicles. They have clearly had a lot of fun over the years, as well as some great skiing. No doubt when they built Those first crude rope tows they couldn’t have imagined where it would lead Cool
