Ski runs open on lower Scottish slopes
Bookmark and Share
More ski runs are re-opening in Scotland today (January 6th) as the extreme windy weather subsides, but some are still closed at higher levels.

The Nevis Range near Fort William has said that slopes above 800 metres are still affected by the wind, such as the Summit Run, Spider, Winger Wall and Rob Roy's Return.

However, lower areas are open, with runs like All Snechda and The Fairway open and others expected to be running today include Goose Gully and Duncan's Drop, which may provide plenty of fun for those turning up with their ski wear.

The most prominent lift - the Gondola that carries visitors from the foot of Aonach Mor over the Leanachan Forest to the Snowgoose Restaurant at 2,200 ft - is running.

Elsewhere in the west Highlands, Glencoe has 12 of its 16 runs open today, while in the Cairngorms National Park, the majority of pistes at Glenshee and the Lecht are open.

Cairn Gorm only has nine of its 35 runs open, but the conditions are said to be "very good" for routes such as Coire Cas and the Ptarmigan Bowl.
