Scotland Ski Summary History

Last updated: Fri 12th Feb, 2016 at 13:21

There is some good skiing in Scotland now with further snowfall boosting depths at all elevations in the east and west Highlands. The forecast also indicates that cold air and further snowfall is expected through the weekend so step by step the Scottish season seems finally to be taking shape with the best cover of the winter now in place.

Last updated: Thu 11th Feb, 2016 at 13:08

All five of the Scottish ski centres in the east and west Highlands are operational now and the snow conditions at each of the centres is slowly improving with each flurry of snow. Heavier snowfall is forecast for the coming days so expect more pistes and more lifts to soon be operating in Scotland.

All five of the Scottish ski centres are open and offering fresh snow conditions. The best of the snow cover is in the West Highlands but with further snowfall forecast the centres in the east expect to be opening more pistes in the coming days. So finally prospects are looking quite decent for skiing in Scotland.

All five of the Scottish ski resorts are open with fresh snow cover at all elevations. Further snowfall is expected this week so expect ski conditions in both the east and west Highlands to keep improving.

Once again all five of the Scottish ski centres are open with fresh snow conditions at all elevations. The centres in the west Highlands have the best of the snow cover so far but further snowfall is forecast so expect improving ski conditions everywhere as the week goes on.

There was only very limited skiing in Scotland through the weekend as stormforce winds hit the Highlands. The Lecht managed to continue to turn uplift and offer limited skiing on thin snow cover but the other centres are prefering to wait for the forecast heavy snow to arrive and for the winds to ease. That should happen through this week so the prospects for all five centres opening soon looks good.

High winds have been impacting on uplift operations in the Highlands but when overhead conditions allow all the Scottish ski centres, except Glenshee, are offering skiing. With heavy snowfall in the forecast all centres hope the week ahead will provide much improved snow cover and skiing conditions.

Colder air and snowfall is expected over the Highlands this weekend and conditions at the five Scottish ski centres are likely to be transformed. For the moment, and subject to wind speeds, just 4 of the 5 centres are open - Glenshee is closed. Skiing is on a mostly thin cover of wet packed snow and the skiable terrain on offer is very limited.

Only Glenshee ski centre is not operating uplift in the Highlands now. The other four centres are offering some decent skiing on fresh snow cover and more snowfall is in the weekend forecast. Whilst snow depths are modest at the moment there should be more terrain on offer this weekend, and maybe even Glenshee will open, provided the forecast delivers.

There is now skiing on offer in the Highlands with all centres, except Glenshee, running uplift. The snow cover is still modest at all elevations with many areas icy and wind scoured but further snowfall is expected so conditions should soon improve further, subject to wind direction.

Last updated: Tue 02nd Feb, 2016 at 14:34

On the nursery slopes of the Lecht ski centre there is skiing now on offer but the other 4 Scottish ski areas remain closed. The forecast promises further snowfall in the Highlands and prospects look positive for skiing to resume at the other centres in the next week.

Last updated: Mon 01st Feb, 2016 at 15:06

Storms continue to move across the Highlands and the freezing level is moving up and down like a yo-yo so for the moment there is no skiing at any of the five Scottish ski centres. Heavy snowfall is in the forecast for later this week so the centres remain on standby to resume ski operations just as soon as is possible.

Last updated: Sun 31st Jan, 2016 at 08:36

The Scottish ski centres are closed currently with not quite enough snow cover to start uplift operations for skiers. However further snowfall is expected and subject to the freezing level over the next few days there is a good chance skiing in the Highlands will resume this week.

Last updated: Sat 30th Jan, 2016 at 16:03

Extreme weather in the Highlands has closed the Scottish ski centres for the moment but all are on standby to restart operations as soon as winds ease and sufficient snow cover has been prepared on piste.

Wild weather in the Highlands and the freezing level has again risen and wiped out most of the snow cover at the five Scottish ski centres. However colder air is expected through the weekend and there will be some heavy snowfall. The centres are on standby to resume operations just as soon as is possible.

Last updated: Thu 28th Jan, 2016 at 14:38

The thaw is over in the Highlands and there is now fresh snow reported by all five of the Scottish ski centres. The forecast indicates further snowfall, and high winds, through the weekend so the hope is that skiing will resume soon, but for the moment no uplift is operating for skiers.

Last updated: Wed 27th Jan, 2016 at 16:02

There is no skiing in Scotland right now at any of the five Scottish ski centres with very wild weather affecting the Highlands. After very heavy rain the freezing level has dropped and fresh snow has arrived so the hope is uplift will start again sooner rather than later.

Last updated: Tue 26th Jan, 2016 at 10:14

Wild and wet weather in the Highlands now and there is very little left of the recent snow cover at all five of the Scottish ski centres. Until temperatures fall and fresh snow arrives there is no skiing in Scotland.

Last updated: Mon 25th Jan, 2016 at 15:42

Very wild and wet weather in the Highlands now means that all five of the Scottish ski centres are closed and almost all snow has been removed from pistes at all elevations. With more rain expected no skiing will be offered in Scotland this week.

Stormy conditions in the Highlands now with milder temperatures and heavy rain ruining snow conditions at all five of the Scottish ski centres. This weekend all five centres hope to be open but that may be optimistic as there may not be much snow left in Scotland once the weather eases.

Milder air is moving into the Highlands now and rain is likely to fall at all elevations in the Highlands. For the moment all five of the Scottish ski centres are open and offering decent skiing but soon the snow conditions will be wet and snow cover will begin reducing.

Last updated: Wed 20th Jan, 2016 at 15:56

All five of the Scottish ski centres are open and offering firm packed dry snow conditions at all elevations but the bad news is the weekend forecast indicates milder air will soon arrive in the Highlands and this will impact negatively on both the skiing conditions and snow cover.

Last updated: Tue 19th Jan, 2016 at 12:02

There are good skiing conditions at all five of the Scottish ski centres this week with sub zero daytime temperatures. Most of the main pistes in the Highlands are now open with dry packed snow conditions and whilst snow depths are modest with the good overhead conditions the skiing is enjoyable.

There was some good skiing and very cold temperatures in the Highlands through the weekend and the forecast for the week ahead remains positive for the Scottish ski centres. All five of the centres plan to stay open through this week and whilst snow depths are modest and not all pistes are open, the skiing on groomed terrain is good thanks to very dry snow conditions.

There are good skiing conditions in the Scottish Highlands this weekend with all five of the ski centres open. The snow cover is dry at all elevations. Snow depths are variable with the best skiing to be found close to the snow fencing and on groomed drifted snow.
