Daily statistical reporting for the five centres Scotland continues until the season ends. Mountain forecasting continues to update 4x per day every day of the week, every week of the year, for all five ski centres. The Weather2 daily written summary for the Scottish ski centres commences again November 1st.

Recent fine Spring weather in the Highlands has broken now and on Saturday high winds affected uplift at Glencoe and Nevis Range. Some light snow is expected over the summits this weekend and so we can expect the two centres in the west, plus Cairngorm in the East Highlands, to keep offering skiing on upper slopes for some time yet.

There is still skiing in Scotland and the forecast suggests fresh snow will fall this weekend. The best of the snow cover currently is on the upper slopes of Glencoe and Nevis Range where pistes are mostly complete. Cairngorm also has skiable snow on the Top Basin and the Cas.

There is good Spring skiing on offer in the West Highlands at Glencoe and Nevis Range. In the East Highlands only the highest slopes of Cairngorm remains skiable. The snow conditions are wet and granular at all elevations but with good overhead the skiing is enjoyable.

The upper slopes of Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range are continuing to offer good Spring skiing conditions and with favourable weather overhead there has been some good sport on offer in recent days. There is insufficient snow for skiing at the Lecht and Glenshee.

There is good Spring skiing on the upper slopes of Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range this week and with settled weather and still impressive snow depths the Scottish ski lifts will continue through April. Snow conditions are mostly soft, wet and granular at all elevations now.

There is good Spring style skiing conditions on offer in the Highlands at Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range. Snow depths on upper slopes remains impressive though the cover is wet at all elevations. Skiing will continue through this week at just these three ski centres.

There is good Spring style skiing conditions for Easter in the Highlands but only at Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range where the best of the snow cover remains. At theses centres the upper pistes hold good snow depths of mostly wet packed snow.

There are milder temperatures in the Highlands now meaning that skiing is on wet packed Spring snow conditions at Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range. On the upper slopes at these centres there is good sport on offer. The Lecht ski centres has very limited snow cover and just two lifts operating, whilst Glenshee is closed for the season.

There is good skiing on offer in the Highlands with all the ski centres open for Easter, except Glenshee. The best skiing is on the high pistes of Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range where the snow is deep and fresh and great to ski. The other good news is that the weather seems to be cooperating with skiers for Easter with relatively calm and bright conditions forecast.

Prospects looks good for skiing in Scotland over Easter with most likely all ski centres in the Highlands open, except Glenshee. There is fresh snow cover now on all pistes and deep cover on the high slopes of Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range. Calmer weather conditions are forecast for the weekend.

High winds have been closing ski lifts in the Highlands but the better news is that snow keeps on falling. For Easter the winds should ease and there is a good chance there will be some skiing at all five of the ski centres. The best skiing though will be on the upper slopes of Cairngorm, Glencoe and Nevis Range.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
