We’re keeping a very close eye on the webcams and weather. Storm Dennis is likely to thwart any plans for the weekend but it is due to stay cold so fingers crossed that we retain a base. We’re keen to get back out on the hill… Let’s hope for some action soon.
Wednesday 18 December 20.15
An excellent day today on and off piste for Pennine skiers and boarders old and new. The forecast is for milder, wetter weather in the next few days so we have no plans to open later in the week. Please keep an eye on the webcams and snow report for fresh snow. We’ll open again as soon as conditions are favourable!
Tuesday 17th December 18:48
More snow today than Sunday and less wind but poor visibility in the morning. Around 2pm the sun came out the temperature dropped the snow dried out and conditions were great for the last hour. The main run is good and powder gulley was fun after the sun came out. Still plenty of thin areas but good skiing available.
The forecast is for a lot more sun tomorrow. We aim to have the tow running by 10:30. See you on the hill!
Monday 16th December 21:40
Good day yesterday. Shame about the wind but the snow was good and the sun was shining.
More snow has drifted onto the main run this morning. We are intending to run the tow again tomorrow (Tuesday) and then Wednesday. There may be a short delay opening tomorrow while we locate an electrical fault but we aim to open from about 10:45. Day tickets will be available both days.
Sunday 6th October
Finished the tow track fence today. It’s been a lot of work this summer removing the old fence and constructing the new one in the long stretch between P3 and P4. The weather was rather wet and we were all soaked by the time we got to the pub this evening!
The hill is now clear of waste wood and we only have a few jobs left to do. We need to do some more grass cutting and we still have the refurbished poma rack left to install but we anticipate that will be fairly straightforward.
Who knows we could be skiing within eight weeks
Thursday 4th April
Sunshine and snow at Yad today, just a few skiers and boarders having fun in some good late season conditions.
Sunday 10 March
A handful of connoisseurs enjoyed the best of Pennine combat skiing and boarding today. Let’s hope for further days on the hill before the season draws to a close.
Ski poles found leaning up against fence in car park at end of day. Please email email@example.com to claim.
Sunday 3rd February
A strong south westerly wind today and overcast conditions. The skiing was still ok and plenty of different routes were available to explore thanks to the hard frozen ground. New snow started drifting after lunch which started to fill the runs in again but caused the tow track to get bumpier than the skiing!
The snow turned to rain but then started to dry up about 3pm.
We hope the 40 or so keen skiers and boarders had a reasonable day on the hill. We await the next skiable day.
Saturday 2nd February

Friday 1st February 2019
The tow will run at Yad moss tomorrow, Saturday from 10am.

Sadly the ski season is now over. We have had some great skiing this year. We hope you caught some of the really good days. Thank you for all the fabulous pictures and videos that you posted on the facebook page.
We will be spending the summer back up the hill on our maintenance and repair programme. We’ll be in contact with those of you who have expressed an interest in the work parties. Please see the volunteering page for dates.
We wish you a great summer and look forward to skiing and riding with you when the snow arrives again.
