A Few Rules


Please do not buy a lift ticket if you have no experience of using a fast ski tow. You must be confident that you can set off smoothly and ride all the way up to the top without falling off.  To avoid serious damage to the equipment you must release your Poma gently and directly underneath the haul rope, immediately after Pylon 7. Unless the tow stops for a prolonged period or you fall, please do not get off before Pylon 7. Do not slalom up the tow track.

Our volunteers reserve the right not to sell you a ticket. Failure to use the tow properly can be dangerous and will damage the equipment potentially causing closure.

Unfortunately we are not able to run the tow at very slow speeds for prolonged periods.


After heavy snowfall road access can be difficult, particularly if driving over the  pass from the Middleton in Teesdale direction. You travel at your own risk.

Though not normally 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 requires space for its snow ploughs to pass. Please bring a spade to dig out your parking space, if necessary.


Yad Moss is run by volunteers. Please follow their instructions, treat them with respect and do not speak abusively to them.
