We drove up there and there was no snow at all until we got to about five hundred feet and at the top (thirteen hundred feet) there was about eight inches - and frozen solid.
The road had been ploughed but was still icy in places and I had to at one point ditch my car to avoid a head on with another vehicle!
The temperature at the top was -2c (28f) and down 'in town' 3c (37f) which was a bigger difference than I thought it would be.
Tracks in the snow showed we were not the first there that day.
Paragliders had beaten us to it!
As you can see the dogs had a very good time!
The hill in the distance on the right is more or less where I work - it's part of my postal delivery round and stands seventeen hundred feet and has a few hundred houses scattered on and around it. Getting to some of them at the moment is as you can imagine a little slippery!
