Quote from today talking about Allenheads – ” The best snow in England” and it still is. Its remarkable that such a thin covering of snow has lasted so well but it has barely budged all week. The temperature has stayed below freezing so no melting or softening and no ice – just good skiing and boarding conditions. We’re opening again tomorrow from about 10.00am and expect to run the tows until about 4.00pm. The forecasts are varied but there is a good chance the snow will be good all day, although it may deteriorate later in the afternoon and evening.
Parking should not be an issue but, if the parking near the field is busy, there is plenty of space in the large public car park across the road from the Allenheads Inn.
The Hemmel cafe will be open again tomorrow from 10.00am to 3.00pm. Probably no Sunday lunches but their winter menu. For more info, see their Facebook page: The Hemmel Cafe | Hexham | Facebook The toilets in the village are closed but the toilet in the cafe is open even if you don’t buy anything.
