Ski enthusiasts can still go skiing in Scotland, despite three of its five resorts being closed due to weather problems.
Glencoe is shut due to high winds and drifting snow, but the Nevis Range - where the slopes face north rather than east - is still open, offering a chance for wintersports fans in the west highlands to don their ski boots
Drifts have also closed Cairngorm and the Lecht, with the former shut while digging out takes place after avalanches.
However, those wanting to ski in the Cairngorrms National Park can still do so at Glen Shee.
People packing their ski equipment for a day on the slopes have been advised to check the latest weather and conditions information before going off-piste, as there are avalanche risks.
Skiers wanting to know more about their chances to hit the slopes while still in England will get a chance to do so from the comfort of their living rooms on Monday January 18th.
The Lake District Ski Club - which has a tow on the side of Raise near Helvellyn - has announced that it will be featured on the BBC programme Inside Out at 19:30 GMT.
