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. 2022 -2023

It’s September and with the first ground frost it’s time to start this seasons thread snowHead

Last season kicked off with Storm Arwen and skiing in November but not a lot after that either in the Pennines or Lake District. A shame given how good the lock down winter the year before would have been.

As always plenty has been going on up in the hills during the summer. At Yad Moss we have been replacing snow fencing at the queuing area and have more to do but it’s all going well. Weardale have continued their refurbishment works to their F1 tow which is looking really good and the LDSC have been super active refurbishing their bull wheel, their electrics and preparing to operate their electric portable tow which greatly extends their skiing options below the hut in favourable conditions.
Season tickets are now on sale at Yad Moss priced at £55 for new adults, £10 for juniors (accompanied by an adult), £40 for retuning members and free to those who have completed three work parties this summer snowHead Yad Moss also have a reciprocal arrangement with the Allenheads ski club. Arrangements with the other clubs will be more limited and are yet to be confirmed. Day tickets at (£20) will normally be available at Yad Moss from the ticket office on the hill ( cash only) unless a busy day is expected.

Season tickets are also now on sale to retuning members at Weardale and shortly no doubt at the Lake District ski club although there is a waiting list for new members there I believe.

Let’s hope for a reasonable season across our hills with lots of great local skiing Cool

Let’s hope for some great skiing this season. I think last winter the ground never froze over enough so a good base didn’t establish itself. Hopefully this winter we get some very cold conditions early in and a base built up to provide foundations for some great tunes when the better snow arrives.

Rick, let’s hope for that. Unfortunately It’s quite rare for a skiable base to build up even at height in the North Pennines. For that to happen as you say we need a cold prolonged and unsettled spell with the freezing level continuously at or below 2000 feet.
Last year one of the skiable days in April started well but then unusually the snow melted from the bottom up presumably because the ground was still warm from the week before. We had some good skiing up until about 2:30pm snowHead

These days we mostly ski on fresh snow or the remains of old snow. Fortunately we don’t need much depth and Pennine snowy- grass skis almost as well as snowy-snow. The grass poking through even helps skiing visibility in the low cloud ……and reduces avalanche risk Laughing
