Honister mines to Green Gable at the head of the Borrowdale valley.
:: Weather Conditions
Strong cold eastly wind. Sunny spells with freezing around 500m
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
The recent freeze thaw cycles have further consolidate the snow pack, making for a bullet proof fast surface. The deep numerous drifts are huge and look set for the season... hopefully. With further snow forcast this week the best season in 20 odd years continues in the Lake's
