Last updated: Thu 22nd Feb, 2018 at 10:29

With temperatures in the Highlands remaining sub-zero through the day at valley level all five of the Scottish ski centres are offering dry groomed and hard packed snow cover at all elevations. The snow cover remains substantial in both the East and West Highlands and with a settled but cold forecast prospects look good for the weekend.

Last updated: Wed 21st Feb, 2018 at 15:10

There is skiing on offer at all five of the Scottish ski centres with more or less all pistes complete at all elevations. This is a situation that does not occur so often and with a favourable forecast for the next few days, with consistently low temperatures, skiers can look forward to excellent snow sports in the Highlands.

There are great skiing conditions in the Scottish Highlands this week with very little wind and an abundance of snow at all five of the ski centres. Temperatures are milder than they have been so surface conditions on the low level slopes are not as fresh as the were, but upper slopes remain in great shape.

The snow cover at all five of the Scottish ski centres right now is the best it has been this winter with more or less all pistes, at all elevations fully complete. Overhead conditions are variable but wind speed is not a problem, for a change, and when bright spells develop there is great snow sport on offer.

The fine ski conditions in the Highlands continue and with calm weather predicted for the week ahead skiers can expect great sport at all five of the Scottish ski centres. Snow depths are impressive on upper slopes, especially in the west, but pisted runs all hold more than enough snow for good skiing at all elevations.

The snow cover at the Scottish ski centres is the best it has been this winter and more or less all pistes are complete at all elevations. The surface conditions are fresh and dry and on groomed pistes the skiing is excellent.

There are fantastic snow conditions in the Highlands right now and the high winds of recent days have finally eased. Skiing conditions are now the best they have been this winter with dry powdery snow cover at all elevations. Further periods of snowfall are expected through the weekend but when visibility is good there is excellent sport on offer at all five of the Scottish ski centres.

Stormforce winds closed all uplift on Wednesday and through Thursday only Glenshee and the Lecht were able to operate surface lifts as the high winds continued. The snow cover at all five of the centres is the best it has been this winter and once the winds ease there will be excellent sport on offer.

Extremely high winds and drifting snow in the Highlands closed uplift on Wednesday at all five of the ski centres and the forecast indicates further wild weather to come. Snow depths continue to build and the cover at all elevations is now substantial so almost certainly when the winds calm the sport on offer will be the best this season so far.

Last updated: Tue 13th Feb, 2018 at 11:33

Very high winds are blasting the Highlands and limiting uplift at the five Scottish ski centres at times. The snow conditions though are by far the best they have been this winter and once the winds ease the skiing on offer will be close to as good as it gets in the Highlands. So lots to look forward to, once the winds ease.

Last updated: Mon 12th Feb, 2018 at 13:48

The best snow cover of the winter continues to build in the Highlands and now all runs at all elevations are fully complete. The next few days will be very wild at all five of the Scottish ski centres with heavy snowfall to come but once the weather eases there is potential for the finest of Scottish skiing to be on offer.

Snow is falling in the Highlands and the best snow cover of the season is now on offer at all five of the Scottish ski centres. Significant snow is expected this week so skiers can look forward to further improvement of piste conditions at all elevations.

Fresh snowfall is sweeping over the Highlands and the best snow cover of the winter is reported from all five of the Scottish ski centres. With wind and snow in the forecast skiers will have to be patient to fully enjoy the fresh snow but once skiers clear and winds ease there will be great Highland ski sport on offer.

There are excellent snow conditions on offer in the Highlands and further falls of fresh snow are forecast for through the weekend. When visibility is good and winds allow there will be great sport on offer with all five of the Scottish ski centres able to operate more or less all pistes.

The best snow conditions of the winter are now on offer at all five of the Scottish ski centres with more or less all marked runs complete and holding an impressive snow cover at all elevations. The forecast for the next few days promises further snowfall so prospects are excellent for when the overhead conditions are kind.

Last updated: Wed 07th Feb, 2018 at 17:03

The snow conditions for skiers are excellent now at all five of the Scottish ski centres and each new day bring fresh snowfall. More or less all the skiable terrain is now on offer at all elevations and whilst the base depths are more substantial at Glencoe and Nevis Range, the ski centres in the East Highlands have more than sufficient cover to offer great sport when the overhead conditions are favourable.

Last updated: Tue 06th Feb, 2018 at 09:19

Fresh and deep snow cover in the Highlands now and skiers can now look forward to fine conditions at all five of the Scottish ski centres and perhaps the best skiing o f the winter. With the freezing level below car park elevation at all of the centres the snow remains dry at all elevations and is great to ski.

Last updated: Mon 05th Feb, 2018 at 17:44

Fresh snow is falling in the Highlands and snow cover is already vastly improved at all five of the Scottish ski centres as low temperatures ensure that at all elevations no snow is being lost. Once the snow front moves through it is likely that snow conditions will be the best they have been this season.

Last updated: Sun 04th Feb, 2018 at 15:48

Excellent snow conditions for skiers in the Highlands right now and more snow is in the forecast. With low temperatures expected to continue the five Scottish ski centres are looking forward to offering perhaps the best ski week of the winter so far with skiing now on offer at all elevations and most pistes complete.

Last updated: Sat 03rd Feb, 2018 at 10:42

Wonderful snow conditions now in the Highlands and skiers are enjoying excellent Scottish snow sports at all five of the ski centres. Snow showers are expected to continue and on Sunday visibility will be reduced at times but the very high winds of recent days have eased and the snow is dry at all elevations.

Last updated: Fri 02nd Feb, 2018 at 13:14

There are fresh snow conditions in the Highlands and much improved snow depths reported by all five of the Scottish ski centres. The weekend forecast is mixed but when winds do not close uplift there will be potential for some excellent Scottish skiing on fresh dry and drifted snow.

Last updated: Thu 01st Feb, 2018 at 14:04

Fresh snow is reported from the Highlands and with a favourable forecast for all five of the Scottish ski centres on Friday, skiers can look forward to much improved snow depths and groomed pistes at all elevations. The deepest snow cover is now reported from the West Highlands and the upper slopes of Glencoe and Nevis Range.

Last updated: Wed 31st Jan, 2018 at 16:41

Fresh snow is falling in the Highlands and more will fall through Thursday. The forecast indicates a weather window on Friday for skier to fully enjoy the improved cover at all five of the Scottish skiers, before wild conditions and further snow arrive through Saturday.

Last updated: Tue 30th Jan, 2018 at 14:00

Heavy snowfall is arriving in the Highlands and all five of the Scottish ski centres will benefit. The weather though does look wild for the next free days so skiers are unlikely to be able to take full advantage of the improved cover. Once the weather settles there should again be skiing at all elevations at all five of the ski centres.

Last updated: Mon 29th Jan, 2018 at 12:13

Recent mild temperatures have removed the skiable snow cover at the Lecht but the other 4 centres are still capable of offering skiing when overhead conditions allow. The forecast predicts significant fresh snow to come through midweek for the Highlands, so potentially we could again have all 5 centres open by the weekend.

Last updated: Sun 28th Jan, 2018 at 14:32

Very mixed weather in the Highlands currently with the freezing level fluctuating wildly. High winds caused problems for uplift through the weekend at each of the five Scottish ski centres but all plan to be open through this week and all expect fresh snowfall so skiers will find some good sport on higher slopes, when the weather is peaceful.

Last updated: Sat 27th Jan, 2018 at 09:21

Storm force winds are limiting uplift and opportunities for skiing in the Highlands this weekend, with just Glenshee and the Lecht able to operate some surface lifts on Saturday. The summits have seen some fresh snowfall but the freezing level is due to rise and so rain may yet damage the snow cover at all elevations.

Last updated: Fri 26th Jan, 2018 at 13:50

Superb skiing conditions on Friday will give way to wild and wet conditions through the weekend and all five of the ski centres will suffer to some extent. At lower elevations there will be snow loss, whilst uplift will be limited by very high winds on higher slopes. All centres will attempt to operate but the adverse weather will have the final say.

Last updated: Thu 25th Jan, 2018 at 13:00

Fine conditions for skiing in the Highlands through Thursday and Friday give way to wet and windy weekend weather.All five of the ski centres are currently open with good snow conditions at the highest elevations but all centres will be anxious about the bad weather in the forecast.

Last updated: Tue 23rd Jan, 2018 at 13:58

Very windy and wet in the Highlands and with the freezing level going up and down like a yoyo the snow conditions, that were superb last weekend, are now damp and depth is much reduced on lower slopes. The forecast indicates heavy rain, sleet and snow to come over the next few days so it is not yet clear what conditions will be on this weekend.
