Cairngorm has reported receiving two feet (60cm) of fresh snow by this morning (Friday, February 6) and aims to open tomorrow for a spectacular weekend. Having closed yesterday the centre was trying to get the access road clear in order to open this morning,
"The White Lady in fantastic condition with two feet of powdery snow. The M1 piste and M2 will be assessed later today. We are in early now to get as much running / pisted / dug out as quick as possible." said a resort spokesperson.
At The Lecht to the south cover is also excellent, the main problem in recent days has been people getting to the slopes with the access roads closed. The road from the north (Tomintoul) is now open but it remains blocked on the Braemar/Aberdeen side. This situation is likely to change soon and the road open for the weekend.
Glenshee reported conditions as, "Nearly perfect" with virtually all runs open as well as the access roads.
At Nevis Range all main runs on the front face are complete with packed powdery snow on a hard base giving great skiing. You can ski back to the top station and to the base of the quad chair on nice groomed runs. There's also ample beginner runs with fresh snow giving easy sliding.
At Glencoe to the south all runs have excellent cover of wind packed powder on a firm base and descents of up to five kilometres (three miles) are possible.
