Those who like to don their ski boots
and hit the slopes of Scotland's ski resorts have been polled on their use of the facilities.
Ski Scotland's email survey asked about which resorts people visited, how often, what time, how much they spent, for how long and the sort of accommodation they stayed in.
It also asked where people came from, something that may see more initiatives to sell extra amounts of equipment in certain places with a high number of wintersports enthusiasts.
Those living in Scotland and wanting to buy ski goggles
, boots or other equipment for a winter on the slopes may wish to visit the Go Outdoors stores at Clydebank or Coatbridge.
Ski Scotland described last winter as "phenomenal", due to the unusually cold weather and the high level of snow cover it produced.
Webcam pictures show snow on the ground at some of Scotland's resorts, although no lifts or tows are open except for the year-round chairlift at Glencoe and Gondola at the Nevis Range.
