Please do not buy a lift ticket if you have no experience of using a fast drag lift. You must be confident that you can ride all the way up to the top without falling off and that you can release the Poma correctly in the dismount area at pylon 7. Failure to use the tow correctly can be dangerous and will damage the equipment. Unfortunately we are not able to run the tow at slow speeds for prolonged periods.
After fresh heavy snow road access can be difficult, particularly if driving over the B6277 from the Middleton in Teesdale direction. You travel at your own risk. Please bring a spade to dig out a parking space if necessary.
Though not usually essential, winter tyres, snow chains or snow socks are advisable for winter driving in the Pennines. Please do not leave your vehicle sticking out into the carriageway. The highways authority require space for its snow ploughs and other vehicles to pass.
