The Eagle 1, Grouse and Snowy Owl pistes are all complete but they have some thin areas. There is no nursery area complete at present.

Cairngorm above Aviemore hopes to open tomorrow, November 1st.

"It is snowing quite heavily here today and we are hoping to open for skiing tomorrow but it will only be a narrow run from the Ptarmigan station via the traverse, Cas and zig-zags using the train for access and not suitable for beginners." said a resort spokesman.

At the other three Scottish areas Nevis Range, Glenshee and Glencoe the resorts currently report that though there have been falls of snow on the mountain over the last few days but not enough to commence snow sports.
