Scotland Ski Summary History

Last updated: Tue 31st Mar, 2015 at 13:53

Wild weather is again limiting uplift in the Highlands but when the winds allow Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range have a good cover of fresh snow on their upper slopes. Further snowfall is expected so prospects for skiing over Easter in Scotland look decent.

Last updated: Mon 30th Mar, 2015 at 14:59

Fresh snow is affecting the Highlands and conditions at the 3 ski centres still open in Scotland - Cairngorm, Glenshee and Nevis Range - are improving. The main upper pistes are complete at these centres and when visibility is good there is good skiing on offer. Further snowfall is expected through this week.

There is fresh snow falling in the Highlands and improving conditions at the three centres that are still offering skiing, Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range. Whilst not all runs are complete the upper slopes are mostly in great condition and further snowfall is in the forecast for this week.

Last updated: Sat 28th Mar, 2015 at 15:39

Overhead conditions have been wet in the Highlands but the freezing level is falling and snow should fall at all elevations on Sunday. Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range plan to offer uplift and some good skiing of fresh snow. Glenshee and the Lecht have insufficient snow to open at present.

Last updated: Fri 27th Mar, 2015 at 13:07

Three of the five Scottish ski centres are open and offering good skiing when overhead conditions permit. The weekend forecast is for very unsettled weather and it looks like it will be rainfall on Saturday at all elevations followed by snowfall on Sunday.

Last updated: Thu 26th Mar, 2015 at 11:42

There is fresh snow cover in the Highlands and some very good skiing on the high slopes of Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range. Glenshee and The Lecht do not hold sufficient snow to offer uplift. The forecast looks very intense for the weekend with further snow, wind and rain moving over the Highlands.

Last updated: Wed 25th Mar, 2015 at 13:23

Fresh snowfall is reported from the Highlands and skiing continues to be on offer at Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range. These centres still hold impressive snow cover on upper slopes and there is good skiing on offer. The forecast indicates more snow to come so prospects for the weekend look encouraging.

Last updated: Tue 24th Mar, 2015 at 12:46

There is skiing in Scotland this week at Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range. The West Highlands have a 10 to 20cm cover of fresh snow on upper slopes and the skiing conditions are pretty good. Further fresh snowfall is expected but probably not enough to re-open The Lecht and Glenshee in the near future.

Last updated: Mon 23rd Mar, 2015 at 12:35

Skiing in Scotland is now reduced to uplift at just Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range but here there is some good sport on offer. There has been a light fall of new snow on upper slopes and the old snow cover has firmed up with lower temperatures. More fresh snow is expected this week.

Last updated: Sun 22nd Mar, 2015 at 16:19

There is still skiing on offer in Scotland but the snow cover is wet and old and only Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range will be offering skiing through this week. The forecast suggests there may be fresh snowfall for the Highlands in a few days time.

Last updated: Sat 21st Mar, 2015 at 16:28

Wet snow cover in the Highlands now but still all five of the ski centres are open. However Glenshee and The Lecht have very limited skiable cover so the most skiers are heading to Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range where there are still extensive areas of old snow cover that are good to ski.

Last updated: Fri 20th Mar, 2015 at 15:22

The remaining snow cover in the Highlands is wet now and slowly reducing but still all five of the ski centres plan to open this weekend. The best skiing is at Glencoe and Nevis Range where the main upper slopes still hold a substantial base of old snow.

Last updated: Thu 19th Mar, 2015 at 12:41

Skiing continues to be offered at all five of the Scottish ski centres with firm packed snow conditions reported. The freezing level is close to summit elevation through the day so snow cover is reducing but on the high slopes of Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range there is still plenty of snow.

Last updated: Wed 18th Mar, 2015 at 16:39

The Scottish ski season continues in the Highlands with all five of the ski centres open. The conditions on offer range considerably however as the East Highlands hold less snow than the West. The high slopes of Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range offer the best of the sport currently on offer.

Last updated: Tue 17th Mar, 2015 at 15:35

Settled weather in the Highlands is allowing all five of the Scottish ski centres to offer skiing this week and there are some good conditions available. The West Highlands have the best of the snow cover and so Glencoe and Nevis Range have the most complete runs with skiing on firm packed snow.

Last updated: Mon 16th Mar, 2015 at 17:01

Overhead conditions are much calmer this week than last in the Highlands and so all five of the ski centres are offering uplift and some good skiing is on offer. The best of the snow cover is in the West Highlands where Glencoe and Nevis Range have all upper slopes more or less fully complete.

Last updated: Sun 15th Mar, 2015 at 16:43

There was some good skiing in the Scottish Highlands through the weekend with the 2 ski centres in the west offering the best of the conditions as they hold the bulk of the snow cover. Fresh snow is expected on Monday and all five of the ski centres plan to operate uplift all this week.

Last updated: Sat 14th Mar, 2015 at 16:57

There was some good skiing in Scotland on Saturday as finally the gales abated and allowed uplift to operate at all five of the ski centres in the Highlands. The best of the conditions are in the West Highlands as they hold most of the snow cover and skiing there is on a mix of fresh drifted snow and icy patches.

Last updated: Fri 13th Mar, 2015 at 15:51

Finally some decent weather conditions for skiing in Scotland and so all five centres in the Highlands will be open this weekend with some good snow conditions on the runs that remain complete. Snow cover on lower slopes is patchy now so expect most skiing to be offered at the higher elevations.

Last updated: Thu 12th Mar, 2015 at 12:03

Skiing on Thursday in the Highlands was once again mostly wiped out by gale force winds but there was some fresh snow falling on the forecast now indicates winds will ease for Friday and the weekend. Prospects for some decent skiing have therefore improved will all five centres holding enough snow to offer uplift.

Last updated: Wed 11th Mar, 2015 at 12:41

Once again very high winds closed almost all ski uplift in the Highlands on Wednesday with only the Lecht ski centre able to offer some skiing. Heavy snowfall is now in the forecast but the winds will also stay high so blizzard conditions likely. Skiing will resume once the weather becomes more settled.

Last updated: Tue 10th Mar, 2015 at 13:56

For the first time in several days all five of the Scottish ski centres managed to open on Tuesday. The winds were still strong but not enough to stop uplift and so skiers were able to enjoy a light cover of fresh drifted snow on upper slopes. The forecast though looks very unsettled with some heavy snow and then rain expected before the weekend.

Last updated: Mon 09th Mar, 2015 at 13:09

The Highlands really have been experiencing some very extreme weather recently and this has limited the skiing on offer. On Monday on the Lecht ski centre in the East Highlands was able to run uplift. However the forecast now looks more favourable as much colder weather and some heavy snowfall is expected later this week.

Last updated: Sun 08th Mar, 2015 at 16:38

The recent gales and mild temperatures have taken their toll on the snow cover in the Highlands and lower slopes at the five centres are now very thin or incomplete. Enough snow remains on upper slopes so once less stormy weather arrives skiing will resume where possible.

Last updated: Sat 07th Mar, 2015 at 14:23

Horrendous conditions in the Highlands on Saturday meant that only the Lecht ski centre could operate uplift as elsewhere stormforce winds closed all lifts. Even worse news is that the snow covered is being very rapidly removed due to very mild air temperatures. All in all a pretty disastrous weekend for skiers in Scotland.

Last updated: Fri 06th Mar, 2015 at 14:53

Weather-wise it has been a bad week for Scottish skiing with gales closing uplift in the West Highlands and now it has become very mild with rain lashing the slopes at all elevations. The weekend forecast is not good but uplift will operate when possible at all five centres are skiing will be offered on wet and reducing snow cover.

Last updated: Thu 05th Mar, 2015 at 12:27

The Scottish Highlands have snow cover but the overhead conditions are doing their best to stop skiers enjoying it. On Thursday 3 of the centres were stormbound and only Glenshee and The Lecht were open and offering drag lifts which were unaffected by the winds. The forecast also looks bad, more winds and milder air with heavy rain to come.

Last updated: Wed 04th Mar, 2015 at 14:37

On Wednesday there was some good skiing on offer in the Highlands despite still windy overhead conditions. The snow cover is good at all elevations right now as there have been significant falls of fresh and dry snow in the last 48 hours. The forecast though remains a concern as high winds and milder air are expected later this week.

Last updated: Tue 03rd Mar, 2015 at 14:04

High winds closed Glencoe and Nevis Range uplift again on Tuesday and Cairngorm had to limit uplift on upper slopes. Glenshee and the Lecht however managed to offer skiing with less extreme conditions and fresh snow on piste. When the overhead conditions ease in the Highlands all five of the Scottish ski centres expect to offer good skiing at all elevations.

Last updated: Mon 02nd Mar, 2015 at 13:17

The wild weather continues in the Highlands and the next few days also look quite extreme with fresh snow and high winds. The temperatures have fallen since the weekend and so now the new snow cover is dry to car park elevation. Prospects for good skiing remain linked to the arrival of calmer weather in the East and West Highlands of Scotland.
