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. 2021- 2022

I am on my way back up to County Durham right now. I am liking the look of next week’s BBC forecast. Of course they need to get the power back on for the poor folk who have suffered this past week (rather more important than skiing).

Indeed. Been some awful stories on local TV and radio this week - eg an 86 year old with no electricity or heating Shocked . I did hear on Radio Newcastle yesterday that Northern Powergrid are now saying they will cover the cost of accommodation and food for anyone who needs to move out of their property. Doesn't sound like the power is coming back on anytime soon... Confused

Weardale was open today after the bonus of overnight snow Very Happy

Cover was decent on the main F1 run but the snow was quite wet and a bit sticky at the bottom. Good fun for a couple of hours.

Looks like good snow cover on the main run though the snow may be a bit damp tomorrow. Some pics on the snow report page taken today by a Walker.

The forecast for Weardale was wrong Confused It was sunny on the drive up to Eastgate but we could see ominous-looking low cloud on the tops towards the ski area.

Sure enough, there was stubborn low cloud on arrival, with mild temperatures (2C) and more or less incessant drizzle. The result was rather damp (but perfectly skiable) snow, which thinned and disappeared as the day wore on.

Still good fun, as ever.

We spoke to new members from Harrogate and Scarborough, who really enjoyed their first visits, despite the less than ideal conditions.

Good skiing in the Lakes and up at Yad Moss today too by the look of it. Cool

Welcomed a couple of newbies.

Sadly probably no skiing at Yad Moss this weekend but hopefully going cold again by Christmas.

Temperatures cooling down for Christmas. Will we get enough snow to run the tows? Will we be allowed to travel rolling eyes

@Peter S, looking like a bit of battle between cold and mild air, but precipitation around, let's hope the pennines get a very pleasant Xmas present Smile

@kitenski,
Yes it’s chopping and changing all the time. If we can get the cold established then a strong easterly will normally supply the snow off the sea. Timing would be perfect….. except from a personal point of view I’ll be up in Scotland Mad

Had a ride up to Yad Moss today.

After 8-10cm of snow around Woodland/Hamsterley area of County Durham on the way there, we were anticipating a lot of snow at the ski area. However, there was less than we expected, with cover very thin and grassy in a lot of places.

Although it was - 3C at the bottom and the snow was very powdery, the underlying ground was sodden. This led to soaked skins on the ascent, with them balling up ridiculously with snow as a result. Descending was tricky too - the skis kept sticking on the wet terrain, making turns very difficult in places. Still, the weather was beautiful; we managed some fresh tracks; and it's always nice to have a slide on home snow Very Happy

The ground should be freezing up nicely tonight. It’s sub zero and there is a strong wind blowing. Just been out on my skis here tonight and there is a lot of snow redrifting on the WNW wind. The fences at Weardale and Raise should be catching it tonight and tomorrow but it will be straight up the hill at Yad Moss. More snow Thursday with a bit of south in it so keep monitoring the situation snowHead

Yad Moss, Weardale and Lakes all need more snow but there is a weather warning for up to 10cms tomorrow. That would be enough…….if we get it! On standby for Friday and perhaps the weekend though it’s getting milder then.

very light snow in North Leeds which very quickly has turned to rain. Yad Moss webcams show a very thin cover and sadly a wet webcam Sad

Forecast was a warm front to move through followed by a return to cold so keep the snow dances going!

Did a few laps at Yad Moss and some jobs up there today. It was actually quite skiable. Unfortunately it’s going to rain tomorrow so we are not going to run. An outside chance that Sunday may be possible ?

Apparently Allenheads was good today Cool
