Scotland Ski Summary History
Last updated: Sat 18th Feb, 2017 at 07:30
Very slim pickings for skiers in the Scottish Highlands this weekend with only skiable snow patches and uplift available at Cairngorm and Glenshee. The forecast is pretty hopeless also with no significant snowfall expected for at least the next 5 days.

There is still some limited skiing on offer at Cairngorm and Glenshee but the snow cover is very thin and patchy and unlikely to last much longer. The forecast too is not good with no significant snowfall likely to rescue the situation anytime soon.

The skiing is almost finished again in the Highlands as after a few days of activity on a limited snow cover the temperature has risen and almost all lifts have been closed. The forecast looks mild and too wet for skiing to resume anytime soon and so the 5 ski centres await more favourable weather news.

Skiing continues in the Highlands at all five of the Scottish ski centres but the snow cover is thin and very vulnerable to the slightest rise in temperature. The forecast does not show snow at present so skiers in Scotland should maximise ski days now whilst the snow cover is firm.

The Highlands are white and all five of the Scottish ski centres have just enough snow to offer limited skiing. High winds have affected uplift operations in the west but whilst temperatures keep the skiable snow cover intact, skiing continues.

Skiing is on offer in the Highlands and at all five of the ski centres. The snow cover looks inviting at all elevations however it is in fact very thin and so skiing is limited. Through midweek the overhead conditions will be mostly dry so no expansion of the skiable area looks likely for the time being.

All five of the Scottish ski centres are open and the Highlands look wonderful cloaked in white at all elevations. The skiing however remains quite limited as the snow cover is thin and with no significant snowfall in the forecast the skiable area is unlikely to expand this week.

Wonderful overhead conditions in the Highlands currently with the mountains white at all elevations and all five of the Scottish ski centres finally open. The week ahead looks dry and the ski centres plan to continue offering uplift but skiable terrain is limited by the still quite thin snow base.

All five of the Scottish ski centres will be open this weekend with skiing on a mostly thin cover of dry snow. More snow is in the forecast but not heavy and so skiing is expected to remain quite limited, but at least the ski season is finally underway in the Highlands.

Finally all five of the Scottish ski centres are offering uplift for skiers. It is the first time this winter all centres have been open and whilst snow depths remain thin and the skiing is still quite limited the pistes that are open hold groomed dry snow that is great to ski.

Skiing is now on offer at Glencoe, Glenshee and Nevis Range whilst Cairngorm and the Lecht require a tad more snow before uplift can start again. With light falls of snow in the forecast we can expect all five Scottish ski centres to be offering limited skiing by the weekend.

Skiing is underway in the Scottish Highlands once again with Nevis Range and Glencoe now open. The Lecht is very likely to open this week also and with the forecast indicating more snow to come all five centres will hope to be offering uplift this weekend.

Fresh snow continues to fall in the Highlands but still there is insufficent snow depth for skiing to resume at any of the five Scottish ski centres. Further snowfall is in the forecast so Scottish skiers have fingers crossed.
Last updated: Sun 05th Feb, 2017 at 15:52
Fresh snow is falling in the Highlands but there is not sufficient snow cover at any of the five Scottish ski centres to offer any skiing. The freezing level for the week ahead may turn out to be just low enough to allow further snowfall to accumulate but there is some way to go before uplift will restart for skiers.

There is colder air in the Highlands this weekend and the summits of the East and West Highlands have seen fresh snowfall but for skiers in Scotland this is another weekend lost as there is insufficient snow cover for any of the five ski centres to open.
Last updated: Fri 03rd Feb, 2017 at 15:02
There is almost no snow remaining in the Highlands and so none of the five Scottish ski centres are operational. The forecast predicts snow for this weekend but at present it looks unlikely to alter the ski uplift status in the east or west Highlands.

There is very little snow remaining in the Highlands but the forecast indicates fresh snow to come this weekend. The problem is the feezing level look likely to yoyo between cold and mild so it is not yet clear if skiing will resume anytime soon at any of Scotland
Last updated: Wed 01st Feb, 2017 at 14:58
The Lecht ski centre in the east Highlands still has two lifts operating for novice skiers to practice on wet snow patches and that is the sum total of skiing in Scotland at this time. Fresh heavy snowfall is urgently required.

There is limited skiing on offer in the Highlands but only at the Lecht ski centre. The other four Scottish ski centres have insufficient snow cover for skiing and no significant snowfall is expected through this week.

There was weekend skiing at the Lecht ski centre in the east Highlands following a heavy fall of snow in the Highlands but now temperatures have risen and it is looking unlikely any of the other Scottish ski centres will open this week.
Last updated: Sun 29th Jan, 2017 at 13:58
Heavy snowfall has been sweeping across the Highlands and the Lecht ski centre has been quick to respond with lifts again providing skiing on fresh and dry snow cover. The other four Scottish ski centres are watching the forecast carefully to decide if they can also open but really it is not yet clear if rain or snow is to come this week.

There has been fresh snowfall in the Highlands this weekend but not sufficient to open pistes or start uplift at any of the five Scottish ski centres. The forecast for the week ahead indicates the freezing level will be too high for snowfall and so skiers in Scotland must wait.
Last updated: Thu 26th Jan, 2017 at 14:19
There is fresh snow forecast for the Highlands this weekend but next week looks set to be too mild again for snowfall. All five of the Scottish ski centres remain closed due to lack of snow cover.
Last updated: Wed 25th Jan, 2017 at 14:29
There is insufficient snow cover in the Highlands for any of the five Scottish ski centres to offer skiing currently but the weekend forecast does promise snowfall so lets hope that marks the start of a change in fortune for skiers in Scotland.
Last updated: Tue 24th Jan, 2017 at 14:28
The forecast for the Highlands is indicating snowfall will return to the region this weekend and the five Scottish ski centres will be desperately hoping the colder weather lasts long enough for the Scottish ski season to commence once again.
Last updated: Mon 23rd Jan, 2017 at 14:43
The forecast has some snow for the Highlands by the end of this week but currently it looks unlikely that the volume of snow will be sufficient to open any pistes. So for the time being the situation is unchanged with all five of the Scottish centres closed due to lack of snow cover.
Last updated: Sun 22nd Jan, 2017 at 12:53
There is no skiable snow in the Highlands currently and so all five of the Scottish ski centres are closed. The forecast shows no significant snowfall expected this week so the waiting game will continue for skiers in Scotland.
Last updated: Sat 21st Jan, 2017 at 11:09
There is insufficient snow cover at all five of the Scottish ski centres for any uplift to operate and no pistes are complete. The forecast for the next 5 days offers almost no snowfall and so the wait for the season to commence at all centres continues.
Last updated: Fri 20th Jan, 2017 at 14:18
There is no skiable snow at any of the five Scottish ski centres and the forecast shows no signs of salvation in the next 5 days. The long wait for the Scottish ski season to fully begin continues.
Last updated: Thu 19th Jan, 2017 at 14:30
There is no skiing in Scotland currently due to there being no skiable snow at any of the five Scottish ski centres. The forecast for the Highlands looks quiet for the next five days so no change in the poor situation for skiers expected anytime soon.
