Scotland Ski Summary History

Last updated: Sat 20th Dec, 2014 at 16:41

There is limited skiing now in the Highlands with all five of the Scottish ski centres now offering some uplift. Snow cover remains fairly light and so the hope is this week temperatures will remain low enough for snow, rather than rain, to fall.

Last updated: Fri 19th Dec, 2014 at 11:33

There is still some limited skiing on offer at The Lecht and Glenshee but the snow cover is still too limited for any of the other ski centres in the Highlands to open. The forecast suggests rain at all elevations this weekend and that may end uplift operations but next week it will be colder with snowfall expected.

The freezing level continues to hold back the Scottish ski season as recent fresh snow has turned wet but still Glenshee and the The Lecht are offering some limited sport. The forecast suggests rain then snow in the next few days so the ski centres remains optimistic some pistes will be open for the Christmas period.

There is skiing in Scotland at Glenshee and the Lecht now but more snow is require to open the other three centres in the Highlands and expand the skiable terrain. The forecast has a variable freezing level, wet snow or rain then becoming colder later in the week with snowfall more likely so prospects look reasonable for the holiday period.

There is some decent skiing at The Lecht now in the Highlands but the other four ski centres still need further snowfall before lifts will operate. There is snow in the forecast so there

The Highlands have a light cover of snow and there was some skiing on offer last weekend. This week however the freezing level is like a yoyo so the centres are waiting and hoping more snow, rather than rain, will fall. No skiing offered currently though.

There was some limited skiing on offer through the weekend at The Lecht and Glenshee but the freezing level has risen now and with rain forecast on Monday there is unlikely to be much winter sport offered in the Highlands until significant snowfall returns.

Last updated: Fri 12th Dec, 2014 at 14:10

Not quite enough snow has fallen in the Highlands during the recent storms to get the Scottish season started with a bang, but The Lecht should offer limited skiing this weekend. The other 4 centres need more snow but the forecast suggests rain for the Highlands on Sunday.

The Highlands have been stormbound this week and snow has been drifting across all five of the Scottish ski centres. With less extreme weather expected this weekend there is a chance someskiing could soon be on offer, but so far no lifts or pistes are open.

Snow is covering the Highlands but all five of the Scottish ski centres are stormbound and it will be later in the week before they are able to access prospects for starting uplift and getting the new season underway. More snow expected tomorrow.

Last updated: Tue 09th Dec, 2014 at 13:49

Heavy snowfall is approaching the Highlands and already all five Scottish ski centres have snow cover at all elevations. If the snow arrives as forecast this week then we can expect the Scottish ski season to soon be underway.

Fresh snow in the Highlands now but not yet enough for uplift to operate. Heavy snowfall is expected through this week so the Scottish ski season could soon be underway

Last updated: Fri 05th Dec, 2014 at 14:31

Snowfall is heading to the Highlands this weekend but there is not enough snow cover on the ground yet for any decisions to be made about preparing uplift for skiers at any of the five Scottish ski centres. The forecast looks promising for next week though sone the season may soon be underway.

Last updated: Thu 04th Dec, 2014 at 11:48

There is no skiing on offer at any of the five Scottish ski centres currently but finally the forecast looks more promising with significant snowfall expected next week. Maybe, just maybe, the season could be underway before too long.

Last updated: Wed 03rd Dec, 2014 at 12:15

There is a very light cover of snow in the Highlands now and more is forecast for the next 5 days but it seems unlikely any uplift will get underway at any of the five Scottish ski centres for another week at least.

Last updated: Tue 02nd Dec, 2014 at 13:29

A very light covering of snow in the Highlands now but much more required before the Scottish ski season can get underway. The centres are however on stand-by for more of the white stuff and will start uplift operations just as soon as enough snow accumulates.

Last updated: Mon 01st Dec, 2014 at 13:04

It remains still too mild for snowfall in the Highlands and so all five of the Scottish ski centres remain on stand-by with eyes on the forecast. No skiing in prospect this week however.

Last updated: Fri 28th Nov, 2014 at 12:09

The Highlands have no skiable snow cover now and the forecast does not promise much for next week. The five Scottish ski centres remain on stand-by but it does not look like there be any early start to the new season.

Last updated: Thu 27th Nov, 2014 at 16:37

There remains no skiable snow cover in the Highlands, in fact there is almost no snow whatsoever at any of the five Scottish ski centres. The forecast for the next 5 days does not look that promising either so no prospect of skiing in Scotland anytime soon.

Last updated: Wed 26th Nov, 2014 at 15:39

There is no skiing at any of the five Scottish ski centres currently as there is almost no snow in the Highlands. All eyes remain fixed on the forecast.

Last updated: Tue 25th Nov, 2014 at 13:50

There is still no snow in the Highlands and so the season is yet to get underway at any of the five Scottish ski centres. All focus remains on the 7 day mountain forecast.

Last updated: Mon 24th Nov, 2014 at 13:04

Cooler air in the Highlands now but still no skiable snow cover. All five of the Scottish ski centres are on stand-by for the start of the new ski season and ready to go once the snow arrives.

Last updated: Sun 23rd Nov, 2014 at 15:24

Still no snow at any of the five Scottish ski centres and so the waiting game continues with all eyes of the 7 day forecast for the Highlands.

It is still heather covering all pistes at all elevations in Scotland rather than snow and so the five ski centres in the Highlands remain on standby for the start of the new season.

Last updated: Thu 20th Nov, 2014 at 16:51

There remains no skiable snow in the Highlands and so all five of the Scottish ski centres continue the waiting game and willing the heather to turn to powder sooner rather than later.

Last updated: Wed 19th Nov, 2014 at 14:46

There has been no skiing yet this season in Scotland and with the pistes still dressed in heather, rather than snow, the situation is not likely to change in the next few days.

Last updated: Tue 18th Nov, 2014 at 17:12

Light dustings of snow have recently landed on the summits above the 5 Scottish ski centres but still no snow is lying where it is required. For now the centres remain on standby awaiting winter weather.

Last updated: Sun 16th Nov, 2014 at 14:28

A dusting of snow in the Highlands now but still no where near enough for any uplift to operate, and so the five Scottish ski centres remain on stand-by awaiting the first day of the new ski season.

Last updated: Sat 15th Nov, 2014 at 13:08

The rain continues to fall in the Highlands with the freezing level still just too high for snow at any of the 5 Scottish ski centres, hence no skiing on offer yet.
