Whats the snow like?
« on: 12:20:27, 13/01/17 »
Hi


Whats the weather like high up, how deeps the snow so far?


Wanting to go out walking tomorrow, possibly ingelbrough or similar
Looking at weather forecast the snow doesn't seem too deep (more snow the better [/font] :) )


Two hour drive to get to the dales so didn't want to set off if its going to be hours of walking in slush


Thanks

Hi,

If you're unaware of this webcam: http: //ingleboroughwebcam. co.uk/latest-hd-image (remove spaces for it to work - not allowed to post links - sssh)

Great to get a feel of the actual conditions.

I wouldn't worry too much about snow. Not been enough recently. It's the black ice you need to worry about.
When I did it last, in December (similar looking conditions), there was quite a lot of it around. Do you have microspikes? I'd definitely say they're a must this time of the year.

Cheers,
Hugh

P.S. I'll be doing them tomorrow - might see you there! I'll be starting from Ribbleshead

Got Crampons, may be a bit overkill (though may be better than trying to iceskate up hill)


Not so much worried about it, just want the snow to be decent, and not slushy

Hopefully Peter will spot this post as the Y.Dales is his stomping ground  O0
No expense spared in pursuit of a bargain ;)
