Happy Christmas - hope you all had a great day. Still waiting for some proper snow, although there is a bit of white in the area:

Allenheads 26-11-2016 at 19:30:01

New verandah flooring. Exciting????

Allenheads 26-11-2016 at 19:29:06

New cabin flooring - waiting to settle

Allenheads 23-11-2016 at 10:05:33

Too wet at Allenheads but Yad Moss running today if you're free to go up.

Allenheads 22-11-2016 at 09:51:22

Snow around but still too wet for skiing. We need some cold weather!

Allenheads 18-11-2016 at 10:28:37

Don't think there is quite enough snow, especially as the ground is not frozen and the grass is still a bit lon - come on sheep, get 'cutting' the grass!! We'll review in the morning but seems unlikely for this weekend. More snow forecast for Sunday, so Monday is a possibility. To get the latest update, phone the answer machine on: 0191 5974 174

Not enough snow at Allenheads for it to be skiable. As grass is still rather long, more snow needed to give a good enough cover.

Allenheads 09-11-2016 at 09:39:53

Morning (not much good about it!), I'm afraid there is not enough snow at Allenheads for it to be skiable. The grass is also still rather long so more snow is needed to give a good enough cover.

Allenheads 07-11-2016 at 18:38:46

Forecast is for a reasonable snow fall tomorrow night & Wednesday morning so we may be able to run the tows on Wednesday. At the moment, our answer machine service is out of action and will re-start next week on a different number: 0191 5974 174. In the meantime, if you want to check out the possibility of skiing on Wednesday, look at the latest Snow Conditions on club's website -, or at this Facebook page. Both will be updated on Wednesday morning, probably around 9.00am.

@winterhighland If we'd taken skis up yesterday, we would have tried!

Allenheads 06-11-2016 at 19:25:35

Tough but successful day in heavy snow!! Both tows up and running, ready for the heavy snow forecast for Tuesday.

Allenheads 06-11-2016 at 19:21:46

Tough but successful day in heavy snow!! Both tows are up and running, thanks to the handful of people who turned up.I'm not sure we have all recovered yet from the cold, wet & exertion but at least everything is ready for the heavy snow forecast for Tuesday. Pictures to be added once Facebook lets me!

Allenheads 06-11-2016 at 14:57:08

Winter in autumn

Allenheads 05-11-2016 at 11:57:26

Tows up tomorrow - but slightly earlier time, starting at 10.00am. If the forecast is right, it might be worth bringing your skis up - or your water skis!

Allenheads 01-11-2016 at 09:47:11

If you come to Allenheads on Sunday from Durham, Wearside note the Rookhope to Allenheads road is closed. Come via Cowshill instead

Allenheads 01-11-2016 at 09:45:42

We're putting the ski tows up this Sunday. Come and help. 10.00am at Allenheads.

Allenheads 27-04-2016 at 17:29:21

A cricket or ski club tweet?

Allenheads 16-04-2016 at 09:43:24

Snow but no tows. How frustrating.

Allenheads 08-04-2016 at 16:27:05

Indoor nets again tomorrow, 11.00 - 13.00 at Excelsior Academy, Denton Rd, Newcastle. New players welcome.

Allenheads 27-03-2016 at 15:49:41

Tows down and packed away. To continue a frustrating season, just after finishing packing everything away - the snow came belting down!

Allenheads 24-03-2016 at 16:22:03

Don't forget tows come down this Sunday, starting 10.30 at Allenheads. With enough help, should finish by 12.30. Bring work gloves if can.

Allenheads 18-03-2016 at 10:37:50

Season seems to be over as tows come down a week on Sunday (Easter). Probably no snow between now and then. Come help - 10.30 at Allenheads.

Allenheads 06-03-2016 at 10:01:51

It's frustrating! Some fresh snow but yet again, not enough cover to be skiable.

Allenheads 05-03-2016 at 09:31:22

No tows today. Yesterday's snow has virtually all gone.

Allenheads 04-03-2016 at 09:45:35

Some snow & continuing but conditions too poor to run tows today. If it continues & it remains cold, it's looking possible for the weekend.
