The forecast held true.
An opportunity for some ski touring action. Another perfect weather day in the Lakes!
With Andy Brown and Eva. From Thirlspot lay-by via Swirls, Under Brown Cove Crags up to the top of Lower Man. 650ft descent on steepish terrain then up to Whiteside. A little crusty and lumpy on top but piste like surface for most of the 1000ft+ descending blast down Whiteside Bank at the end.
Everywhere looks skiable. A shame there’s a mild spell coming.
