A sunny start to the day with the tops covered in snow. Picture near Troutbeck enroute.
Headed up to the Lake District Ski Club hut on Raise after parking at the Greenside Mine car park. Definitely not straight out onto the piste here. It's a long walk up and you are nackered by the time you get there. The cloud was down and it was windy. No corrugated piste bashing either. The snow was terrible boiler plate frozen sleet by the looks of it. The lumps and bumps were unspottable in the flat light. After three runs down, 2 falls and a long "rest" in the club hut I heded down out of the cloud into Keppel Cove.
Keppel Cove is a bleak spot on a wild day and Catseycam is a fine mountain from here.
Circled [click on to enlarge] a person on the north west ridge of Catseycam.
Well no chips in Keswick on the way home, but a grand coffee in the Square Orange.
