- Anyone ridden Mastiles Lane in this year's snow?
I have been planning a shortish loop from Kilnsey up Mastiles to Malham Tarn then over the top and and back round to Arncliffe Cote.
I was keen to do this route this weekend for sentimental reasons. This was planned well in advance but now it has snowed. I don’t mind a bit of snow riding, so long as it is actually rideable! Has anyone been out and about in the past week or so?Posted 5 years agomartinhutchSubscriber
Haven’t ridden, but walked the moor near Skipton on Wednesday, which is roughly the same height.
Varied from a few inches to thigh-deep snow depending on aspect and drifting (it’s deeper on west-facing slopes). Snow was fairly powdery without a firm crust at that stage.
More snow forecast this evening.
In short, expect hard work.Posted 5 years agoB.A.NanaMember
forecast is 2 degrees Saturday and 5 degrees Sunday. Snow around Settle on Wednesday was between a few inches and a foot (or more) depending on elevation and drifting/aspect. Further snow was forecast today, but it hasn’t happened (Skipton), yet (might happen overnight). IMO it will be hard going in a few inches or more of wet slushy thawing snow.Posted 5 years ago
