The North Pennines has some of the best winter sport opportunities in England, with well established ski tows in Weardale, Allenheads and Yad Moss. Both day skiing/snowboarding and annual memberships are available from the clubs.
The North Pennines are one of the snowiest parts of the UK, with snow lying on the ground for around 2 months of the year. For those who wish to go off piste, cross country skiing and ski touring are permitted over open access land. Much of the North Pennines is ideal for cross-country within the broad dales and open high plateaus.
Experienced walkers venturing out during winter conditions in the North Pennines are in for an exhilarating day with glorious views.
