As of this morning, all five of Scotland's ski resorts are now open. The fifth and final resort to open was Glencoe, which began running its lifts today at 10 a.m.
Continuing snowfall has improved conditions across Glencoe's ski area and all runs have a good cover of soft powdery snow, but there are rocky places so beware. Five out of seven lifts in the resort are now running; the Wall t-bar isn't in use as the track is incomplete.
Scottish resorts have benefited from the snowstorms that have swept across the UK in the past couple of weeks. More snow is on the way with 1-7cm forecast for the Scottish resorts between now and Dec. 30.
Caingorm Mountain is 80 percent open with 60cm on the upper slopes and 25cm on the lower slopes; The Lecht is also 80 percent open with 45cm/30cm; Glenshee is 60 percent open with 40cm/25cm; Nevis Range is also 60 percent open with 40cm/20cm; and as of today Glencoe is 70 percent open with 35cm/10cm.
Skiers driving to Scottish resorts should beware of icy roads. Glencoe skiers must bring cash or book online as card machines have not arrived yet.
