Snow overview for Scotland
Skiing was resumed in Scotland once again this week, with three resorts open for skiing on Thursday 23rd March.
In the west both Nevis Range (20/35cm) and Glencoe (20/35cm) were running 5 and 7 lifts respectively, and were offering some nice skiing on groomed slopes, and some windblown powder stashed off to the side.
In the east, it was a lovely sunny day at Cairngorm (10/25cm), with the best skiing to be found on the upper slopes. Take care when skiing lower down as conditions are patchier, and some natural hazards are about.
Expect a rise in temperature this weekend and a continuation of the sunny skies that will stretch into the new week.
It's important to remember this is not the Alps, but with that in mind we had a great time. The snow was far better than expected, the Pomas all fast enough (and long - they get you right to the top), and some reasonable off piste down to the Ciste car park where a shuttle bus takes you the short distance back to the main bowl. There are enough runs for a good weekend. Plenty of ski tourers out and ski schools also and instructors for private hire. The weather is Scottish - obviously - so quite biting winds at times, and low cloud (and no tree runs) which was challenging, but having tows and the funicular rather than chairs means it can keep running when winds are higher than the Alps would allow. When the clouds cleared it's very pretty looking across the Highlands. It's all slightly shambolically run and a bit pricey for what it is (if you want to hire equipment at the resort itself on a weekend then get there as early as you can to avoid ridiculous queues) and the restaurants need some streamlining, but going in with a healthy mindset of not taking it too seriously or expecting Swiss Alpine standards (in snow quality or resort efficiency) and appreciating that you're skiing in your own country is pretty cool. Number 31 bus takes you there from Aviemore town centre.
