Gosforth in Cumbria saw heavy snowfall on Friday
Cumbria Police said it had received 800 calls for help including drivers involved in crashes or stranded because of fallen trees.
About 450 homes in the Carleton, Workington and Seascale areas remain without power after lines came down.
Electricity North West said it was working under difficult conditions to restore supplies as soon as possible.
The adverse weather led to the closure of about a dozen schools.
Guy Newbold, from Seascale, Gosforth, said the wind had been “howling” since early morning.
“We have four foot snow drifts on our lane and it’s wild outside,” Mr Newbold said.
The annual Coniston 14 road race, scheduled for Saturday, has been postponed.
Organisers said it would be rearranged for a date in October.
