Scotland Snow Report 14 April 2018

STORY BY Patrick Thorne 14th April 2018

There’s a mixed picture across the five Highland Scottish ski areas with marketing news release indicating a cold snap on the way, which seems to be a different view to weather forecasters who are saying temperatures in nothern Scotland may touch 20C over the week ahead.   

Marketing body Ski Scotland says the country has already enjoyed is best season for the past four winters in terms of skier days, passing the 200,000 mark last week, and that it expects the season to continue in to May.

Nevis Range has indeed said, conditions permitting, it will be opening weekends and other elected days through to May 7th.

Glencoe reports superb spring skiing conditions with all runs complete. It also says it will close in May but mostly so it can get on with installing a new triple chairlift for next season, not due to a lack of snow.

Cairngorm also reports great conditions, its unclear as yet how long they plan to remain open.

Glenshee say that after closing from Tuesday to Thursday next week their final day will be Sunday 22nd next weekend.

The Lecht is currently less optimistic and reports it is assessing conditions following the recent thaw.
