Had a good day at Weardale Ski Club. Thanks to the Steves for their guiding. They’re running tows again today as plenty of snow, especially higher up. Also expect some icy bits and bits of mud and grass to steer around. But good fun. Yad Moss also opening again today.
Field has patchy snow with green patches on the tows so they can’t run. The ground is also saturated so no skiing I’m afraid.
We’re checking out the conditions and will update by about 10.00 to say whether open or not.
A very snowy but stormy night in prospect. There may well be enough snow to open tomorrow although drifting may make it patchy. We’ll update in the morning. Access from Rookhope & Weardale may be difficult.
Snow is now patchy and skiing tricky so we’re not planning on opening today. Will review later as more snow forecast but expected to quickly turn to rain, so very unlikely conditions will be good enough to run the tows.
More snow forecast for tomorrow and Sunday so Sunday is looking a distinct possibility for opening.
Yad Moss & Weardale running this morning, so Ski-Allenheads members can get reduced rate day tickets if you fancy a go.
Snow conditions not bad. Complete cover and perfectly skiable on a firm base so we’re open today. Tows are running now and will continue to about 5.00pm! Weather is sunny and cold.
There’s been a little snow overnight and it may be possible to run the tows later. Will update about 10.30 when the conditions have been checked. Answer phone (0191 597 4174) will also be updated.
There is more snow on our slope than indicated on neighbouring webcams. Often 6 inches and more in places where it had drifted. Unfortunately there are a few very thin if not bare patches where the wind has blown the snow. The ground is very wet as well. With the colder weather forecast, all we need now is a little more snow as forecast later this week. Skis crossed.
Snow stopped but thawing on wet ground so not running tows today. Frost and more showers overnight so if the snow stays, may well be OK tomorrow. Will update in the morning.
