Like much of Europe, the UK basked in ridiculously mild temperatures over the Christmas and New Year break.

The Scottish ski areas took a hit.

But now the holidays are over, the cold and the snow have returned.

The peaks are looking a little whiter again.

“With plenty of snow in the forecast this week it shouldn’t be long now before we can welcome skiers back to Glencoe Mountain Resort,” the owner of the resort, Andy Meldrum, told PlanetSKI on Wednesday 5th.

He was right, and on Friday 7th some lifts started spinning.

Here’s the situation in Cairngorm.

The Nevis Range is also planning to open at the weekend.

Four of the nation’s ski areas took to social media last Wednesday to update on the current conditions in Scotland.
