/ Wales or Lakes for winter action
Therein lies the million dollar question... I am waiting for the weatherline report on saturday before deciding if and where to set off to!
In the meantime, fingers crossed!
I'm usually pretty optimistic but I don't think it will have been cold enough for long enough to freeze much turf here in the Lakes by the weekend. I have been wrong before though!
i think it'll just be cold and frosty though according to the forecast.
No real snow (just a dusting) on Coniston OM or Wetherlam today just a very heavy frost, the ground was frozen above about 550m this morning, had chat with 2 guys who had climbed Easy Terrace on Dow Crag, they said it was dry at the bottom then became very slippery further up with verglas near the top.
Views across the lakes were good, Bowfell, Crinklr Crags and the Scafells all had a dusting of snow but the Helvellyn range looked to be clear.
Hope this helps ?
Looks like more than a dusting on Bowfell and Crinkles?
