Not quite a winter climbing question but any one know if theres any snow on the top of the Kirkstone pass, I've the grand children arriving this weekend from the south for Christmas and would love to take them sledging if possible

cheers

In reply to Maurice52: I don't think so. Mind you, during a failed attempt at getting up there this evening I only got as far as The Golden Rule before difficult driving conditions* saw me turn back.

Seriously, the snow level seems to be around 600m give or take, and I doubt there's enough snow for sledging at the top of the pass

In reply to Maurice52: Just a sprinkling on Scafell summit but you might have problems getting a 4x4 up there!
