/ Cheviot access?
The access should be fine, the road isn't ploughed anyway, main concern should be the very thin snow cover for skiing, only a small dump, the hills look pretty though.
i did a tour of the town moor last night ;-)
Any updates on access?
Heavy snowfall on friday, snow showers today, just in from a wee leg stretch around the Wooler alps, knee deep @300m, would have thought a 4x4 necessary for langleeford.
we went up there on sunday. great day all round!
jimmcfarlane- is it who i think it is??
I would imagine you should battle through to Langleeford with chains, most roads are passable now, was just up on the tops above ingram on the XC skis, trying to get somewhere to park off the road will be the biggest problem due to the depth of snow, shovel a must to dig out, had a fantastic day on the skinny skis yesterday also around Humbleton and the gallops, feels desolate and wild, the snow as deep as the gates in places.
Where did you get to on sunday, would imagine Cheviot to be quite sporting.
Thanks Andrew, sounds incredible up there. We didn't manage to get beyond the entrance to the Langleeford Road on Sunday but had a great few hours on the skis (on the heavy ski touring fritschi set-up) on the slopes around there. Can't wait to go tomorrow.
