Scotland Ski Summary History

Last updated: Sat 31st Jan, 2015 at 16:35

The Highlands are again in the grip of extreme weather with high winds on Saturday causing problems at Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range. At the Lecht the access road was closed in both directions due to drifiting snow. Winds will continue to disrupt operations on Sunday but once the winds ease there should be excellent skiing on offer at all five of the Scottish centres as the snow cover everywhere is now wide and mostly deep.

Winds speeds are rising again in the Highlands and snow is continuing to fall so it seems likely that uplift operations and ski access roads may again be disrupted by the weather this weekend. However, looking on the bright side, when the overhead conditions ease the prospects for excellent skiing in Scotland look very real.

The weather in the Highlands is windy and wintry but all five of the ski centres are open again with good snow cover at all elevations. Often the highest pistes are wind scoured but there also pockets of powder snow to be skied. The forecast promises more snow and more wind but subject to the extremes of the weather there is great Scottish skiing in prospect.

The West Highlands felt the brunt of the storm on Wednesday with Nevis Range and Glencoe stormbound but the East Highlands still offered skiing at all 3 centres. The forecast indicates more snow to come but also high winds so skiers and the ski centres must wait for the weather extremes to ease before uplift can provide access to what promises to be great conditions at all elevations.

Blizzard conditions are in the forecast for the Highlands on Wednesday and it seems very likely the ski centres will struggle to open, at least those in the West Highlands. Once the storm has passed the prospects for skiing at all five of the Scottish centres look good as already they have a good snow base and snow cover at all elevations.

An exciting week of weather for the Scottish Highlands with heavy snowfall expected from Wednesday. All five of the centres are open once again and the freezing level has dropped, meaning that the wet weekend snow has now refrozen. It should provide a very good base for the fresh snow to come.

Last updated: Sun 25th Jan, 2015 at 13:06

High winds caused problems in the West Highlands through the weekend and temperatures also rose to dampen the snowpack but look ahead and colder air and further snowfall means prospects remain good for further skiing at all five of the Scottish ski centres.

Last updated: Sat 24th Jan, 2015 at 14:05

The Highlands are once again experiencing very strong winds and this is affecting uplift operations, especially in the West Highlands. The freezing level is also subject to extreme variation, mild on Sunday, then colder again on Monday. The forecast suggest more very unsettled conditions with some days bring rain and some fresh snowfall. All five of the Scottish ski centres will be open, subject to weather extremes.

Wild weather returns to the Highlands this weekend with high winds likely to cause problems for uplift in the West Highlands especially. The freezing level is also going to soar on Sunday so the snow cover, which lately has been in excellent condition for skiers, will suffer. Looking to next week it should become cooler again and further snowfall is expected. So as ever with Scottish skiing, unsettled and unpredictable skiing conditions to come.

Last updated: Thu 22nd Jan, 2015 at 15:05

Excellent alpine-style weather conditions in the Highlands currently and more snow to come for all five of the Scottish ski centres. All the centres are now open and offering fine dry snow conditions and coverage at all elevations. With more snow due to arrive this weekend, mostly in the West Highlands, the conditions will further improve.

Last updated: Wed 21st Jan, 2015 at 13:38

The best skiing of the winter is on offer in the Highlands this week with all five of the Scottish ski centres now in operation and offering good snow cover at all elevations. Further snowfall is expected, heaviest on Friday night in the West Highlands, and temperatures will remain low so more great skiing in prospect on fresh and dry snow Scottish powder.

Last updated: Tue 20th Jan, 2015 at 14:03

The Scottish Highlands have excellent skiing on offer now with alpine style weather and pretty impressive snow cover. All five of the ski centres are open and most pistes are now skiable. More snow is in the forecast before the weekend so prospects for further good winter sport look great.

Excellent alpine style conditions in the Scottish mountains currently with all five of the centres open and the skiable area being increased daily as drifted snow is pisted where it is required. The forecast promises more snow later in the week so prospects good for more fun in the East and West Highlands

Last updated: Sun 18th Jan, 2015 at 15:51

Excellent Scottish ski conditions now with all five of the ski centres open and increasing amounts of skiable terrain being offered. Temperatures for the week ahead are very low and more snowfall is forecast. So all good news for skiers heading to the Highlands.

Last updated: Sat 17th Jan, 2015 at 16:24

Excellent skiing conditions now in Scotland and more snowfall is expected. All five of the ski centres in the Highlands are once again open and further piste and lift openings are expected over the next few days. Care is advised on ski access roads as wintry conditions prevail.

Heavy snowfall in the Highlands means we are closer to having the best skiing of the winter on offer. On Friday only 2 of the centres managed to open as winds remains high and snow was causing difficulties on the ski access roads. The winds should ease through the weekend and then pistes will be prepared. There is enough snow now to open almost all pistes at all elevations.

Last updated: Thu 15th Jan, 2015 at 14:01

Snow is drifting over the Scottish Highlands but winds remain too high for the ski centres to open, except at The Lecht. Once the winds ease and the snow drifts are relocated to the pistes the skiing on offer will be the best so far this winter.

Last updated: Wed 14th Jan, 2015 at 14:11

Heavy snowfall is being reported from the East and West Highlands and prospects for the best skiing of the season so far, at all five of the Scottish ski centres, look good, just as soon as the gales ease, access roads cleared and large snow drifts pisted onto groomed runs. The forecast also suggests more heavy snowfall before the weekend.

Finally the forecast looks great for the Scottish ski areas with heavy snow forecast for much of the next few days. Already two centres have re-opened, The Lecht and Nevis Range, and the others will follow just as soon as winds ease, storm damage repaired and snow drifts re-located to the pistes.

The wild weather continues in the Highlands but now it is colder and snow is falling. The forecast suggests considerable snowfall this week and so it seem likely that as the winds ease and snow drifts are distributed over the ski runs there will soon be skiing on offer again, and possibly at all five of the Scottish ski centres

Last updated: Sun 11th Jan, 2015 at 12:35

The Highlands remain stormbound with hurricane force winds and both rain and snow blowing across the five ski centres. There is no skiing on offer currently and until the winds ease the lifts will not be restarted. The forecast suggests heavier snow to fall later in the week.

Last updated: Sat 10th Jan, 2015 at 16:34

High winds continue to cause problems in the Highands and whilst there is snow falling most of it is being blown off the ski areas. Once the winds ease the five Scottish ski centres will move drifted snow and they seem confident skiing will be on offer. The forecast however suggests more wild weather to come and some heavier snowfall.

Last updated: Fri 09th Jan, 2015 at 15:01

Storms have been battering the Scottish Highlands for the past few days and sometimes they blast rain, and sometimes snow, over the five ski centres. For the moment no lifts are open and the skiable snow cover remains very limited but the forecast does look promising with snowfall expected.

Last updated: Thu 08th Jan, 2015 at 13:31

Very wild weather in the Highlands currently and none of the ski centres are open. However rain is turning to snow again at all elevation and the limited snow cover will soon start to expand. With significant snowfall in the 5 days forecast, mostly for the West Highlands, there should soon be skiing again on offer in Scotland.

Last updated: Wed 07th Jan, 2015 at 16:47

Stormy conditions in the Highlands and rain, sleet and snow have been hitting the ski centres. Currently no centres are open, partly because of the high winds, partly because very little skiable snow is available, but all five centres are optimistice that the snow forecast for the next few days will allow uplift to soon operate. Until then, all eyes on the forecast.

Last updated: Tue 06th Jan, 2015 at 16:42

There have been light falls of fresh snow in the Highlands but only 3 of the 5 Scottish ski centres are open and offering very limited sport. More snow is required and the forecast looks promising for that this weekend with wintry conditions expected across the East and West Highlands.

Last updated: Mon 05th Jan, 2015 at 14:26

Some heavy snowfall is expected later in the week in the Scottish Highlands but until then skiing remains very limited and only available at four of the five centres. The freezing level has yoyo-ing lately but mostly it has been too high and snow cover has been reducing. Maybe the next snowfalls will kick-start the season.

Last updated: Sun 04th Jan, 2015 at 15:41

The Highlands have limited snow cover but four of the five Scottish ski centres are open with thin hard packed snow conditions. Another heavy fall of snow is required to expand the skiable area but that is not in the forecast for the next few days.
