Scotland Ski Summary History

Last updated: Thu 28th Apr, 2016 at 12:59

The Scottish season will last into May as fresh snows sweep over the Highlands to improve the skiing on the pistes that remain open at Cairngorm and Glencoe. This weekend will see Glencoe close for the season on Sunday, joining Glenshee, the Lecht and Nevis Range but at Cairngom uplift will operate a bit longer and with further snow in the 5 day forecast skiers should find good sport on offer.

There is still skiing on offer in the Highlands with Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range still offering skiable snow on their highest slopes. The skiing at Glenshee and the Lecht is finished for the moment but will re-commence if there is heavy late season snow in Scotland. Stranger things have happened.

There is still skiing in the Highlands at Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range but Glenshee and the Lecht are closed due to lack of snow cover. The skiing that remains is on variable snow conditions as the freezing level is above the summits through the day but colder weather is in the forecast so the snow cover is soon likely to re-freeze on the high pistes that remain complete.

It is wet at all elevations in the Highlands now and snow is being lost at the 3 ski centres still operating in Scotland. Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range will however continue to offer skiing on upper slopes despite the rain and sleet but Glenshee and the Lecht are closed due to lack f snow.

There is skiing still on offer in the Highlands at Cairngorm, Glenshee and Nevis Range. Recent high level snow has given a slight boost to conditions on the very highest pistes where skiing is still offered. Lower slopes are all broken now and Glenshee and the Lecht are closed due to lack of snow cover.

Last updated: Fri 01st Apr, 2016 at 15:05

Storm force winds, rain, sleet and a little bit of snow are blasting the Highlands so there was no skiing at the Scottish ski centres on Friday. The weekend forecast looks mixed but still often windy and wet so it is not clear what skiing will be on offer. The Lecht and Glenshee are closed regardless though due to lack of snow cover. The other centres will open when overhead conditions allow.

There is skiing in the Highlands at Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range but Glenshee and the Lecht are now closed. Skiing is on a variety of snow conditions but is limited to upper slopes. The forecast is for high winds and rain before more settled conditions are established through the weekend. Hopefully after the rain enough snow will remain for some April skiing in Scotland.
