Today I joined Sean ( www.expeditionmedicine.co.uk ) and Chris for a ski up Blencathra….. it was as busy as an alpine ski resort. Walkers, snowboarders and skiers were all over the mountain. It was extremely windy near to the top and I would think the people we saw on Sharp edge had an exciting time!
The higher we got, the stronger the wind became. We were forced to put Kelda and Tipsy on their leads incase they got blown off the ridge. It’s quite tricky getting a rhythm going uphill with a dog tugging you off balance! I didn’t mind, as I knew I would get my revenge on the way down, with Kelda having to run all the way to keep up.
Finally it came to the down bit, and as usual it was all over far too quickly, I’d say less than 10 minutes to the point where we reached the track and the skis came off for a wander back too the car. I wonder how long it will last?? Maybe Pete should have had an option for skiing in the Lakes or Derbyshire for the blog meet in July??
