Scotland's ski resorts are now offering a greatly improved outlook for wintersports lovers.
Last week, many people heading to the Highlands in their snow boots
and ski jackets
will have had to choose carefully where they went, with some resorts closed and others only offering limited skiing on a handful of slopes, due to mild weather and high winds.
However, the snowfall of recent days has put all that right, ensuring there are lots of chances to hit the slopes.
Before skiing began today (Thursday January 24th), Cairn Gorm reported there would be "another great day on the slopes in prospect", while the Lecht described the Buzzard run as being in a "fantastic" state.
The Nevis Range has reported that the best runs on Friday may be well below those on the summit of Aonach Mor, due to forecast high winds.
Wind may be a bit of an issue at Glencoe, while all runs have been unpisted today due to its groomer not being fully operational.
