They tweeted today: "Five metres of snow on Raise. Ski tow and hut buried. Avalanche risk in the area high."

The Lake District Ski Club operates a 360 metre button tow on Raise, next to Helvellyn.

Meanwhile the Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for ice in Cumbria and south west Scotland covering from 8pm Saturday until 10am Sunday.

Severe weather closed a number of high pass roads in Cumbria yesterday.

More wintry showers are forecast on the fells tomorrow.
