Cairngorm has been open for the past week with limited terrain available for all ability levels at the top of the slopes and reduced priced tickets.  On the West Coast Glencoe was open last weekend and may re-open this weekend – they say they have enough snow but not enough skiers and boarders. 

Available terrain was mostly suited to intermediate and advanced skiers.  Its chairlift is running daily so ski tourers can get easy access to terrain above the snowline.  Nevis Range was not open for skiers and boarders on its own runs last weekend but it did run the quad chair above the gondola so that those prepared to ski off piste on unpatrolled terrain could access the backside of the slopes.  It has not yet decided if it will offer a similar arrangement this weekend.  The Lecht and Glenshee have inadequate snow cover and remain closed.
