Wintersports fans heading for the Highlands with their ski goggles
may be able to enjoy more action than a few days ago - but more snow may be needed to create ideal conditions.
Last week only the Nevis Range and Cairn Gorm resorts had any runs open afer mild weather had left insufficient snow on most runs.
Flurries taking place over the past few days have helped somewhat, but Nevis Range observed: "Recent snowfall has improved conditions but it's a bit like starting the season over again, so we could do with more snow."
There are just six runs open at the resort, while Cairn Gorm has eight, having used artificial means to enhance the runs with "the best night's snowmaking we have ever done".
Of the three resorts that were closed last week, Glen Shee has now been able to open three runs, but the Lecht and Glencoe remain closed despite receiving some fresh snow.
