Ski areas in Scotland are enjoying the biggest season in 60 years with snow depths of 16 feet! Scottish ski areas are already predicting that their season will run into late spring or even early summer.
All Scotland’s five mountain ski resorts – CairnGorm Mountain, Glencoe Mountain, Glenshee, Nevis Range and The Lecht – have been reporting excellent conditions and unprecedented snow depths.
Andy Meldrum, managing director at Glencoe mountain, said: “It’s been snowing every day since the middle of December, the most snow I’ve seen here and the most our regulars have seen in the past 60 years of skiing here.” Andy goes on to say, “The skiing season normally finishes in April. But I think it’ll run well into May this year, and there’s a good chance it’ll even run into June.”
At a snow depth of 5 meters, Glencoe claims one of the biggest depths of anywhere in the world and, judging by the photos from their Glencoe Facebook page, it might just be.
