/ Lakes gully conditions
Incorrect. There is very little snow. A team did Central Gully at the weekend. No problem with conditions.
The first snow flakes fell in Staveley at 1pm Sunday and continued until lunchtime Monday. Kendal MRT rescued two walkers lost in a whiteout up Kentmere Sunday evening.

Correct - go look is exactly what matters - relatively little snow High Street - Helvellyn - Blencathra - Central fells.
I did Central Gully on Brown Cove Crags, Helvellyn today. Lots of powdery, loose snow, not really in good condition. Snow line quite low down on Helvellyn range. Looks like a lot more snow to come on Friday? Get your skis on!
I was out around the Coniston fells today...lots of loose powder snow but no ice at any levels....I had a look down the gullies on Dow crag and they were full of windslab....we need some more snow and freeze thaw cycles to make things good. Hope this helps....
