There's early season skiing... and there's early season skiing

Alpine conditions were reported on the fells as club members took to their skis in the Lakes and The Pennines during November.

Bright sunshine, virtually no wind, and deep snow provided ideal conditions overall several days - with tours on Great Dun Fell, the Shap fells, Matterdale Common and the Dodds.

Kevin and Christine Cook provided this picture of their tour up Randerside from Matterdale Common, then on towards the col between Great Dodd and Clough Head..

Kevin said: "The descent to the car was thoroughly enjoyable and we both felt to be discovering our ski legs again. We only met one other person on the fells that day, and the views will linger in our memory for a long time."

The winter meets programme has again been organised should there be snow. Details of weekend leaders will be published on the events page and in the comments box.
