Most snow below 500m has now disappeared in the slow thaw over the last few days but higher up it's still very much winter. Had a quick run up Cow Hill today (the local dog walk). Blobs of ice still on some lower paths and tracks. At least it'll be easier walk ins to the hills over the next few days. Hopefully the thaw will cease by the weekend, that's the weather forecast at the moment. Plenty available dates still at the beginning of January, February starting to get busy if your planning to work off some festive stodge.
