Skiing in Co. Down

mourne-mountainsThis video has been doing the rounds this weekend, of a few lads (and a dog) skiing in the Mourne Mountains over Easter. The peak, Slieve Donard, which is at 850m looks to have gotten quite a few inches of fresh powder. The hike up did look quite exhausting, and not for the faint hearted. The also attempt a decent of Slieve Bearnagh, 727m, on the north side near the 4 minute mark, which looks quite amazing. It’s always great to see these videos showing that it is indeed possible to ski in Ireland.
