Snowboarding in Cumbria

For those who want to snow board on real snow in Cumbria, there are two main options:


Snowboarding at Raise Cumbria.
The slopes at Raise are about 25 miles South West of Helvellyn and usually offer several months of skiing and snowboarding per year. The downside is that it is not suitable for beginners and involves a long walk. You have to become a member of the Lake District Ski Club to use the facilites, although membership is very reasonably priced. www.ldscsnowski.co.uk. Both skiiers and snowboarders are welcome.

Snowboarding at Yad Moss Cumbria.
The facilities at Yad Moss have recently been upgraded. The longest lift in England and a brand new day lodge mean that Yad Moss is a great snoboarding venue. There are long wide slopes and varied terrain making it ideal for boarders and skiers alike. However, the long lift and fairly steep slopes mean this mountain is unsuitable for beginners.
