Yad Moss Ski Slope is run entirely by volunteers. Facilities have gradually been improved over the last 40 years and we now offer good and accessible opportunities to enjoy snow sports in this part of northern England. Every penny we take gets ploughed back to improve the experience.
The ski area is served by a fast Poma tow of 600m length and 125m vertical rise. It is suitable for intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders but is unfortunately not really suitable for novices.
In good snow conditions there are 8 blue/red ski runs of up to 800m in length. The highly variable snow cover and rough terrain however, mean that it is not possible to mark each run in the same way as an ‘alpine piste’. Instead the ‘ski runs’ are lined by snow fences or otherwise follow shallow gullies or areas where the grass has been cut shorter. Snowsports are often only possible at Yad Moss because the absence of rocks and the grassy surface enable skiing on very thin snow cover.
The daylodge provides warmth and shelter for your picnic (please bring your own food and drinks) and is equipped with composting toilets.
You will need to bring your own skiing equipment and clothing to keep you warm and dry. There are no ski hire facilities at Yad Moss.
