Scotland Ski Summary History

Last updated: Thu 14th Dec, 2017 at 14:26

Just Cairngorm, Glencoe and the Lecht are offering limited skiing in the Highlands currently but with more snow in the forecast this weekend for the high ground of Scotland, more pistes, and also the Glenshee ski centre, are likely to soon be in operation.

Last updated: Wed 13th Dec, 2017 at 14:57

The Highlands are experiencing deep winter conditions right now and further falls of fresh snow are arriving. All five of the Scottish ski centres are reporting an improving situation and more pistes will open as soon as cover improves. Today Cairngorm, Glencoe and the Lecht are open but this weekend all centres except Nevis Range are likely to be operational.

Further snowfall over the next few days will boost snow depths at all elevations at Scotland

Last updated: Mon 11th Dec, 2017 at 14:50

Low temperatures are preserving recent snowfall over the Highlands but another heavy snowfall is required to open further ski pistes in Scotland. The forecast looks promising for later this week though and Cairngorm, Glencoe and the Lecht continue to offer skiing until the next significant snowfalls arrive.

Last updated: Sun 10th Dec, 2017 at 15:44

The Scottish Highlands are white but snow cover is not as deep as skiers may expect with just Cairngorm, Glencoe and the Lecht are operating ski lift. Further piste preparation will make use of drifted snow so on the runs that are open the snow conditions are good and further snowfall is expected.

Fresh snow and very high winds have been blasting the East and West Highlands and prospects for skiers at Scotland

Last updated: Fri 08th Dec, 2017 at 14:19

High winds are fresh snow are hitting the Highlands and with huge snow drifts now being created alongside snow fencing at all five of the Scottish ski centres the prospects for skiing look very promising, but only when the winds abate sufficiently for uplift to run and pistes can be prepared.

Snow has started falling again in the Highlands and this marks the arrival of Storm Caroline. The forecast indicates extreme winds, very low temperatures and significant snowfall and of course this is all great news for the five Scottish ski centres. Just as soon as winds ease and drifted snow can be pisted the centres will again be operating uplift for skiers.

Recent mild temperatures in the Highlands have removed snow cover at the five Scottish ski centres but the weather situation will change dramatically through Thursday as Arctic air, high winds and heavy snowfall hit the high ground of Scotland.

Last updated: Tue 05th Dec, 2017 at 14:29

There is limited skiing on offer in the Highlands right now but there is the promise of much more to come as heavy snowfall and very low temperatures will arrive from the North through Thursday. This weekend Scottish skiers can expect all centres to be open, except Nevis Range.

Last updated: Mon 04th Dec, 2017 at 14:25

Mild and damp air is moving over the Highlands now and a thaw has removed snow cover at all elevations. However there is still limited skiing on offer at all Scottish ski centres except Nevis Range. All eyes are on the forecast as by Thursday cold air and heavy snowfall is expected to transform prospects for skiing next weekend.

Last updated: Sun 03rd Dec, 2017 at 18:20

The Scottish ski season has got off to an early start with 4 of the 5 centres in the Highlands now open and boasting snow cover at all elevations. The next few days look less cold but before next weekend significant fresh snowfall is forecast.

Last updated: Sat 02nd Dec, 2017 at 15:01

The Highlands are offering limited skiing this weekend at 4 of the 5 Scottish ski centres. There is thin snow cover at all elevations but piste cover on upper slopes have been bulked up with fresh drifted snow and conditions there are good for this very early stage of the new season.

Last updated: Fri 01st Dec, 2017 at 14:23

The Scottish ski season is underway in the Highlands with 3 of the 5 ski centres now providing uplift with fresh snow conditions at all elevations. Further pistes are being prepared for the weekend so prospects are good for early season skiers.

Last updated: Sun 26th Nov, 2017 at 10:55

The Highlands are white but not quite white enough for uplift operations to commence for skiers at any of the five Scottish ski centres. Further snowfall is in the forecast o ver the next few days so it does seem very possible that the Scottish ski season will soon commence.

Last updated: Thu 23rd Nov, 2017 at 14:35

Snow is falling in the Highlands and more is expected through the weekend. All five of the Scottish ski centres are on standby now for the start of the new season and will start turning uplift and preparing pistes just as soon as enough snowfall has accumulated.

Last updated: Tue 21st Nov, 2017 at 08:38

There is fresh snow falling on the highest slopes of the 5 Scottish ski centres but no skiing is yet underway. All centre are ready to roll just as soon as enough snow accumulates and all are hoping for a better season this winter than last.

Last updated: Thu 16th Nov, 2017 at 14:16

The Scottish Highlands have a dusting of snow but so far no uplift is underway for the new season at any of the five Scottish ski centres. Pre-season maintenance is underway at Nevis Range and Cairngorm but otherwise the centres are ready to start turning.

Last updated: Mon 06th Nov, 2017 at 16:16

There its no skiing yet on offer in the Highlands but all five of the Scottish ski centres are on standby for snowfall and the start of the new season with all very much hoping the coming winter has more of the white stuff than the last.

Last updated: Thu 30th Mar, 2017 at 14:08

Heavy rain has further reduced the snow cover in the Highlands and now only Cairngorm is able to offer some skiing on just its highest piste. The forecast is for rain so sadly not good news for skiers in Scotland right now.

Last updated: Wed 29th Mar, 2017 at 15:03

The limited remaining snow cover on the high pistes of Cairngorm, Glencoe and nevis Range is reducing in mild and cloudy conditions but still uplift continues to operate, just as long as the snow is skiable.

Last updated: Tue 28th Mar, 2017 at 14:58

There has been sunshine skiing on the highest ski slopes of Scotland in recent days but rain arrives midweek and this may quickly reduce the sparse snow cover that has been providing the sport at Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range.

Last updated: Mon 27th Mar, 2017 at 15:09

There is fun spring skiing still on offer on the highest slopes of Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range. The weather is mild and sunny and the scenery excellent so despite lack of snow volume there is still enjoyable sport to be had.

Last updated: Sun 26th Mar, 2017 at 16:07

Mild and dry with sunshine is the forecast for the Highlands so not ideal for skiing in Scotland but where the snow is still deep enough, at Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range, there is some fun spring style skiing to be had.

Last updated: Sat 25th Mar, 2017 at 16:03

Fine spring weather in the Highlands now and there is fun skiing on offer on the highest slopes of Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range. The forecast is dry and mild so it seems the snow cover will continue to reduce through the week ahead - not what skiers in Scotland want to hear.

Last updated: Fri 24th Mar, 2017 at 15:04

It is turning mild in the Highlands but Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range continue to offer uplift. On the highest slopes where the snow cover is skiable there is good fun to be had, especially whilst the sun shines.

Last updated: Thu 23rd Mar, 2017 at 14:55

Very mild weather will soon arrive in the Highlands and this is likely to quickly wipe out the limited skiing available at 3 of the Scottish ski centres. Next week looks unusually sunny and mild so not good news for skiers in Scotland.

Last updated: Wed 22nd Mar, 2017 at 15:12

The Highlands have some skiing on offer again with Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range operating uplift for access to a mostly thin cover of fresh dry snow. Glenshee and the Lecht have insufficient snow cover to open.

Last updated: Tue 21st Mar, 2017 at 15:18

Fresh snow is drifting in high winds across the Highlands and it seem that once the weather settles there will be skiing at Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range. The forecast indicates further light snowfall this week so very gradually the limited ski area is expanding.

Last updated: Mon 20th Mar, 2017 at 15:15

Windy and increasingly cold weather is impacting on conditions at the five Scottish ski centres and with snow in the forecast hopes are again raised that the season might yet come good. For the moment though, just limited skiing at Cairngorm and Nevis Range, when winds allow.
