taken 8 years ago, 3 km from Dalton, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Not good for skiing
Not good for skiing
There is good skiing to be had on parts of the moorland (perhaps with a bit more depth of snow) but this is definitely not one of those parts. Snow settles on the heather rather than on the ground and can soon form a complete cover which looks great from a distance, but repeatedly drops you thigh deep in the tangly vegetation. Further up the hill in the centre of the view is a much more grassy slope which would be OK, and the track would probably be skiable even today. However, long tours over the moors are best avoided, as one soon strays over the horizon and onto the Feldom ranges where the army takes a more serious attitude to heather. By the sound of it today, they were not only shooting it, but giving it hell with grenades !
