Skiing to resume in Lakes?
Bookmark and Share
Those hoping to head up to the Lake District in their ski boots may be able to look forward to hitting the slopes again after work began to repair the gear box on its ski tow.

A statement at the weekend on the Lake District Ski Club's Facebook page stated: "The gear box has been taken up raise today so the work meet is on for Sunday," adding there was "plenty of work to be done".

Once fixed, the club should be able to resume skiing wherever there is enough snow, with the chance February may see fresh flurries.

Such news may act as a reminder that those donning skiwear need not go to Scotland to enjoy some wintersports fun in Britain.

Meanwhile, Scotland's five ski resorts have all said there is skiing available at present, although Glen Coe and Cairn Gorm have warned many or all areas are not suitable for beginners.

The latter venue did note there are "great snow conditions from mid mountain up".
