Weather in the Lake District can change rapidly so we run a weather forecast service called Weatherline.
It features data direct from the Met Office, with a five day forecast. Between December and April our Fell Top Assessors record winter conditions daily from Helvellyn, the Lake District's busiest mountain in winter.
We'd love to be able to tell you, but conditions vary enormously from one year to the next. Our Photos - through the seasons gallery shows how different each month can be.
The winter skills day course, based in the Lake District National Park, are taster day for anyone who wants to learn the basics of how to use an ice axe and crampons for winter walking. A Lake District Fell Top Assessor will guide you through the basic techniques required for safe winter walking in the fells. Courses run from December through to April, check out the dates and book now here.
The weather in Britain mostly comes from the Atlantic. When the clouds hit the mountains of the Lake District, they rise, the water vapour within the clouds cools, condenses and falls as rain or snow.
Check out our Checklist for walkers for tips on what to wear and what to bring when walking in the Lake District.
