Winter in May

Winter in May

As the world continues to heat up with new mean global temperatures nearly every year, local weather anomalies seem even more notable – especially when they’re cold!  As the image shows of our trip up Blencathra yesterday, winter has temporarily returned to the Lake District.  Whilst the unseasonable conditions may have caught a few people out, they certainly did get others excited as winter boots had a last hurrah.  Even the Lake District Ski club had an excellent day out on Raise – none of the members could remember such excellent powder conditions in May.

If you’re interested in support for your days out in the Lakes or further afield, whatever season presents itself, Steve will be pleased to help you.  Just call to discuss your needs.

Keswick Guided Walks

The government has indicated that we will be able to offer professional, organised outdoor sport and activity from March 29th.  If this happens as scheduled Steve will be pleased to assist with any mountain or other outdoor activities with which you would like some support. Please get in touch to discuss your interests and needs – we’ll be delighted to hear from you and will do our best to help.

To reassure you, we are, and will continue to be, very keen to work within all government regulations and guidelines in regard to Covid-19 so as to best protect ourselves and our clients from infection.  We are taking this disease very seriously and have no intention of taking any unnecessary risks.

Due to the coronavirus restrictions we’ve been unable to take clients out or to travel from home.  We have though, managed to walk from our front door, including a good family trip in the snow up Hallsfell Ridge on Blencathra returning via Blease Fell.   Some short roping was required to protect our young son from being blown away in the frequent and strong mini-blizzards (image) but an exciting adventure was had.

Steve is looking forward to being able to take clients out again once we’re allowed to do so.  If you have any mountain adventures of your own you’d like some support for please do get in touch and we can discuss how best to assist you.  We’ll be pleased to hear from you and happy to help.
