Marian Austin, Nevis Range MD commented, "We hadn't planned to open until Saturday 18 December as we were, and still are, in the midst of our maintenance period. However, with the early snowfall the conditions had been improving steadily and a good base of snow has now built up across most of the ski area. We were all delighted with the weekend and the conditions were described as being brilliant for so early in the season, with hardly any queuing."

The resort plans to open again for the weekend of 11-12 December 2010, although due to the ongoing construction work there will still be no Equipment Hire or Snowsports School.

Thereafter Nevis Range plans to open fully for its winter season on Saturday 18 December.
