Snow conditions set to improve
Bookmark and Share
The very windy weather may have kept skiers off the slopes, but the Nevis Range has said winter sports fans should soon be able to head back to the pistes.

People coming in their skiwear are likely to be able to ski from Thursday this week (January 5th), with wind speeds predicted to be much slower.

And with more snow on the way, the slopes will be well covered.

In the meantime, ski lifts have been tied up to prevent them de-railing and at other Scottish venues, the stormy weather has caused similar problems.

Glencoe reported at the weekend that it was receiving plenty of snow, but that this was being blown off the pistes and into gullies by the high winds, forcing management to close the slopes until the weather improves, which it expects to happen this week.

Further east, Cairngorm closed its lifts and the funicular railway today (January 3rd), but is hoping to be able to open again tomorrow.
