Here it is – the Pride of Newtyle – 1070mm of finest ply with 50mm waxed runners 310mm apart and weighing in at 4.5kg. Rope handles have a breaking strain of 2000kg.
Performance testing to be carried out on the hill above Kirkton Farm this afternoon. Snow conditions: LOTS and ICY. It’s snowing more as I type. Departure is imminent – just a nappy change away.
