Ski Touring in the Lakes

It’s taken me a little while to write this up, but me and Stu had a proper mountain day ski touring in the Lakes last week.
There was really good snow cover, a bit hard, due to freezing conditions, but great fun non-the less.  The best and definitely funniest bit was skiing and navigating in a complete whiteout.  At one point i skied headfirst into a big bank of snow I just didn’t know was there.
Skiing up onto Stybarrow Dodd…we could still see at this point!
Looking West towards Keswick.
The Back (north) face of Stybarrow Dodd.  It was ICY!!
Stu looking very relaxed as always.
River crossing on skies…how did it all end?!
It’s gotten warm and wet since, but it’ll be back for sure and we’ll keep posting when it does.
