    That’s got my attention. I was thinking of heading into Wales but if the Nan Beild is clear then I’ll head up there on Monday.

    I meant Kentmere Village is clear, not Nan Bield, that looked all snowed up from a distance. People had been riding over garburn pass tho, but that’s much lower.

    Nan Bield descent is covered in snow for it’s totality – it has a different aspect to Garburn

    So we decided to park at Haweswater, hike-a-bike up Nan beild and descend into Kentmere. The path was totally snowed over but following footprints was enough to give us some direction. The snow was pretty deep, but a whole lotta fun..pretty stop-start. Gatesgarth climb was easier with much less snow until you reach the top, and the descent was similar to the first. All in all, worth going if you fancy a snow ride.. dont expect any record breaking times though. My mate was on a fat bike too which did a much better job on the slopes than my hi rollers!

    Did a great ride on Monday on the lower trails around Kentmere – largely dry and quick trails with very little snow. Big bright shiny thing in the sky too 🙂

    Looked very snowy up towards Nan Bield …..
