A ski facility in Cumbria has reported having the "best snow conditions for years" as the arctic weather continues.
Yad Moss in the Cumbrian Pennines - owned by the Carlisle Ski Club - has said it is expecting to open its ski tow from around 10:30 GMT today (January 7th).
This means those donning skiing equipment
can enjoy the slopes in the vicinity, provided they have experience of using a fast-drag ski tow.
The club stated that those who are coming should bring a shovel, as the car park is prone to getting inundated with snow as the cold weather persists.
Located seven miles south of Alston, the venue is one of several listed on the Ski Resorts of Northern England website, offering a chance to don the ski boots
without heading up to Scotland or overseas.
Others include Swinhope - home of the Weardale skiing club, Raise in the Lake District, Harwood Common and Castleside in County Durham, plus Allenheads in Northumberland.
