The destruction of the snowbase is such that it is highly unlikely that any will be able to re-open for Easter.

The one exception is CairnGorm Mountain above Aviemore which is struggling to maintain a base for beginners and intermediates with limited remaining snow.

Fresh snow is still falling at the top when rain falls below  and there is an intermediate standard track to the middle station of the funicular but beginners are recommended to ski on the plateau at the top of the slopes.

Saturday saw the return of the popular Vans "Dawn of the Shred" Series 5 snowboard competition at the terrain park.

"Grab your skis and boards and come and enjoy the remaining snow while you can!" said a CairnGormn Statement
