- Snow status – Hebden Bridge?
Roads are nearly all open except some of the more exposed routes, but there’s still a lot of deep (and I mean DEEP – think 6 feet or more) snow drifts up the tops. Also a lot of boiler-plate ice in patches. It’s tricky walking in places at the moment.
EDIT – it’s also snowing steadily this morning in the Todmorden area.Posted 4 years agoDPMSubscriber
We were up there last weekend. Car & bikes still up there due to deep drifting on the exposed high roads, which were between where we were staying & the main road. Hoping to get back there sometime later this week to collect them. Feels like we have left half our familly behind 🙁
Keen to know how conditions develop this week (obviously!)
There were DEEP drifts last weekend – covering the roads to the height of the dry stone walls. Walking was difficult. The bikes were not used once.Posted 4 years agobrantSubscriber
I rode from Hebden to Walsden. Was quite challenging on the track from back of Horsehold up to the Pennine Way by the Pike. London Road largely ok going but I was on a Fatty with 3psi in the tyres.Posted 4 years ago
Ed from greatrock has moved his skills days to Dalby and Grizedale as snow is deep here.CloverSubscriber
There’s an unnatural glow in the air and no flakes of the white stuff have fallen. How much this will affect the snow on the ground is difficult to know.
I farm up at the Mankinholes end of London Road and the deal seems to be that the fields are fine but the snow was blown onto any path, track or road and if just left to melt seems to be doing that really slowly. I’ll be giving riding a go tomorrow but expect it to be variable.Posted 4 years agochippsSubscriber
Yep. In parts it’s very rideable with some great trail conditions. In other bits, there are six foot drifts to wade over. We were out for a couple of hours today and probably rode 70% of stuff and had to walk the rest. Bring good shoes and a sense of humour and you’ll have a fine day. There doesn’t seem to be any/much ice around any more, just some big-ass drifts next to the walls (which is usually where the trails are too…)Posted 4 years ago
