Scotland Ski Summary History

Last updated: Sun 21st Jan, 2018 at 16:15

All five of the Scottish ski centres hold impressive snow cover at all elevations now and when weather conditions are favourable there is excellent skiing in the Highlands. However the forecast is anything but settled with the freezing level expected to rise and then fall, plus strong winds, rain, sleet and snow through this week.

Last updated: Sat 20th Jan, 2018 at 17:57

All five of the Scottish ski centres are open and offering excellent sport for skiers at all elevations. Weather conditions were excellent on Saturday but by Sunday afternoon fresh snowfall will again impact in both the East and West Highlands, which is all music to the ears of the ski centres and snow lovers.

There are excellent snow conditions now in the Highlands and skiers can look forward to perhaps the best skiing of the Scottish season through Saturday before the weather deteriorates again on Sunday. Snow depths have increased significantly in recent days and so the skiable area is almost complete, top to bottom.

Last updated: Thu 18th Jan, 2018 at 14:02

The five Scottish ski centres are open with fresh dry snow conditions. The forecast for the weekend looks better for Saturday than Sunday with cold air, good visibility and moderate winds so prospects look decent for some of the best skiing of the Scottish season so far.

High winds and periods of heavy snowfall are now impacting on conditions at all five of the Scottish ski centres. Once the weather settles in the Highlands and skies clear there will be good skiing on offer and the forecast for Saturday looks very promising indeed in both the East and West Highlands.

Last updated: Tue 16th Jan, 2018 at 11:18

Fresh snow is drifting in strong winds across the Highlands and the prospects for great skiing once the weather settles are excellent. All five of the ski centres in Scotland already hold enough snow to offer good skiing at all elevations and further significant snowfall is expected as the week goes on.

Fresh snowfall has arrived in the Highlands with lots more in this week

Last updated: Sun 14th Jan, 2018 at 13:35

A stormy and snowy week in prospect for the Highlands but when conditions allow all five of the Scottish ski centres plan to operate uplift with an expanding skiable area. With the high winds forecast we can expect considerable drifting and once this has been pisted there is potential for the best skiing of the season by next weekend.

Last updated: Sat 13th Jan, 2018 at 11:46

High winds closed uplift at Nevis Range on Saturday but Sunday will see conditions ease ahead of a big weather change and heavy snowfall arriving in the Highlands on Monday. There remains sufficient snow at all five of the Scottish centres to open on Sunday but really skiers are looking forward to fresh snowfall transforming conditions.

Last updated: Fri 12th Jan, 2018 at 14:58

There are mixed overhead conditions in the Highlands currently and high winds have again limited uplift operations but the snow cover remains decent at all five of the ski centres as temperatures remain cool. The weekend weather is not ideal for skiing but looking further ahead there is significant fresh snow forecast for next week so prospects for skiers in Scotland could soon improve.

Last updated: Thu 11th Jan, 2018 at 11:34

There are good snow conditions in the Highlands and all five of the Scottish ski centres are open. Snow depths are perhaps best in the western Highlands but all upper slopes are in pretty good condition now. And next week very significant snowfall is expected across the Highlands so prospects finally look excellent for skiers in Scotland.

Last updated: Wed 10th Jan, 2018 at 14:08

High winds have limited uplift in recent days at some of the Scottish ski centres but the overhead conditions are now easing and prospects for some excellent Highland skiing are good. All five centres are now operational with skiing offered on dry groomed snow at all elevations.

High winds have limited uplift in the Highlands but snow cover remains good at all five of the Scottish ski centres and prospects look good once the weather eases. With temperatures remaining low the snow conditions are dry at all elevation and there is potential to improve piste conditions with large accumulations of drifted snow.

Last updated: Mon 08th Jan, 2018 at 10:19

There are superb Scottish skiing conditions on offer in the Highlands right now with calm and bright weather overhead and low temperatures. All five of the Scottish ski centres are open and whilst all pistes are white skiers will find the best sport on the main pistes and upper slopes or where drifted snow has accumulated.

Last updated: Sun 07th Jan, 2018 at 12:00

There are glorious conditions for skiers in the Highlands right now with all five of the Scottish ski centres open and offering dry snow cover plus calm, cold and bright weather overhead. Snow depths are variable and lower slopes thin but where the snow lies deepest the skiing is excellent.

Last updated: Sat 06th Jan, 2018 at 12:44

The best skiing of the season is on offer at all five of the Scottish ski centres now and with low temperatures and improving overhead conditions skiers can fully enjoy dry snow cover at all elevations. Pistes are being improved by further grooming and redistribution of drifted snow and so ski prospects are good for the week ahead.

Last updated: Fri 05th Jan, 2018 at 15:28

The five Scottish ski centres are open and providing some good skiing on dry snow at all elevations. Glencoe and Nevis Range have the best of the snow cover but all areas are working to open more pistes for the weekend by maximising all the drifted snow. The forecast indicates windy conditions on Saturday may limit uplift at times but Sunday could be the best day of the season so far.

Last updated: Thu 04th Jan, 2018 at 13:49

All five of the Scottish ski centres are open and conditions are improving with further snowfall and low temperatures prevailing. The West Highlands have caught the heaviest snowfall but everywhere piste crews are moving drifted snow to open new runs and improve slopes that are already open.

Last updated: Wed 03rd Jan, 2018 at 15:37

All five of the Scottish ski centres are back in business with fresh groomed dry snow conditions and with drifted snow being worked onto pistes the skiable area continues to expand. Overhead conditions are improving and winds easing but by the weekend further snowfall will arrive so prospects for an extended run of lift operations in the Highlands look good.

Last updated: Tue 02nd Jan, 2018 at 15:41

All five of the Scottish ski centres are now scheduled to be operational for the remainder of this week, subject to wind speeds. The snow depths are continuing to increase and with drifted snow now being maximised and increasing number of pistes are now on offer. With further snowfall forecast prospects look good, once the winds ease.

Last updated: Mon 01st Jan, 2018 at 14:40

The new year has begun with uplift operating for skiers at the Lecht and Nevis Range with the 3 other centres preparing to open. Snow depths are creeping up and once drifted snow is pisted there will be some decent skiing in the Highlands. Further significant snowfall is forecast so a good start to 2018 for skiers in Scotland.

Last updated: Sun 31st Dec, 2017 at 12:47

Snow is falling in the Highlands and all five of the Scottish ski centres are optimistic that early in the New Year skiing will resume. The recent high winds have helped build significant snow drifts on the high slopes of the ski centres and significant piste preparation will be required before pistes open.

Last updated: Sat 30th Dec, 2017 at 15:16

Snow depths in the Highlands are steadily building but with very high winds in the forecast only the Lecht ski centres is expecting to offer ski uplift for the end of 2017. The New Year will start with less extreme conditions and certainly there is the potential for the other Scottish ski centres to open, though that is still to be confirmed.

Last updated: Fri 29th Dec, 2017 at 14:14

There is limited skiing at Cairngorm and the Lecht once again in the Highlands whilst the other 3 Scottish ski centres await further snowfall. Ironically there is actually more snow to the south of the Highlands but the forecast does now indicate periods of heavier snowfall for the ski centres through the weekend.

Last updated: Thu 28th Dec, 2017 at 11:44

The Lecht ski centre is preparing to open uplift for skiers once again whilst the other four Scottish centres still need one more heavy fall of snow before they can operate. The forecast for the weekend looks promising with heavy snowfall expected over the Highlands on Saturday and so there is a good chance 2018 will start with some decent skiing in Scotland.

Last updated: Wed 27th Dec, 2017 at 13:01

The Highlands are white and snow is drifting over the five Scottish ski centres but so far no pistes and no uplift is open. Further snowfall is expected but it remains to be seen if enough snow will accumulate for any of the five centres to offer any significant skiing before the year end.

Last updated: Tue 26th Dec, 2017 at 11:44

All five of the Scottish ski centres have fresh snow cover now but much more snowfall will be needed before pistes reopen. The forecast indicates cold air and further snow showers but it is not yet clear if enough snow will accumulate for any ski uplift to operate before the year end.

Last updated: Mon 25th Dec, 2017 at 15:14

There has been no uplift operating for skiers at any of the five Scottish ski centres due to lack of snow cover but colder air has now arrived in the Highlands and fresh snowfall is expected. Just as soon as enough of the white stuff accumulates uplift will restart, but whether that will happen this year is unclear.

Last updated: Sun 24th Dec, 2017 at 13:59

There are no pistes complete for skiers in Scotland this Christmas and all five of the ski centres in the Highlands are on standby for the arrival of fresh snowfall and a prolonged period of low temperatures. The forecast suggests the wait will not be long as a weather change arrives through Christmas Day with fresh snow expected and also much lower temperatures.

Last updated: Sat 23rd Dec, 2017 at 13:14

High winds, mild air and heavy rain are currently affecting the Highlands and there is no skiable snow cover at any of the five Scottish Ski centres. Christmas Day will deliver a change for the better for skiers in Scotland as temperatures will fall and significant fresh snowfall is expected but it is not yet clear if this will lead to ski uplift starting before the New Year.
