Location

The Lake District Ski Club is situated on Raise, adjacent to Helvellyn, in the Lake District National Park. It's about an hour's walk from the YHA at Glenridding, and you should be reasonably physically fit and be equipped with appropriate equipment for a mountain activity before you make the journey. For the best ways of getting here see Getting to Glenridding page and don't forget to read the Getting up the Mountain page


Glenridding is situated on the shore of Ullswater, for more information about things to do and places to stay in the area, see the Ullswater website. There are a couple of pubs, and many members stop off at the Traveller's Rest for apres ski.


Some of our members make some fantastic journeys from all over the country to ski at Raise. If you are travelling from far away, there are plenty of B&Bs and several hotels locally, or the YHA is, of course, just an hour's walk from the club hut!
