Report
:: Tour Route(s) or Location Skied/Ridden
Cheviot hills around Wooler, Northumberland
:: Weather Conditions
Beautiful weather, no wind. -3 at 100m asl on arrival -4 on departure. A *lot* better than forecast!
:: Snow Conditions and Distrubtion
Very impressive depth of snow at all levels. over a foot in Wooler and 2 feet at 320m (didn't go any higher).

Light, soft uncolsolidated snow - hard work breaking trail.

Did part of the St Cutherburt's Way then up above Wooler Common into the national park and did a couple of the hill tops before returning. Will be stacks of snow on the Cheviot.

Roads very dodgy but passable.
