Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Good news. Glenshee has got permission for a double snow factory. Hope that means they can install it for this season.
It looks as though they have decided to go for snow making rather than build the chairlift they got permission for two years ago.

I think they have made the logical decision that the snow making is higher priority at the moment than the 4 person chairlift, once finances allow hopefully they will continue with the chairlift plans in a year or two's time....

Looks like all the pylons are up on the new Plateau chairlift at Glencoe. They hope to have it running by next Autumn. Should be a good addition serving green runs early in the season and likely to reduce queuing on busy days right across the hill Cool

Heading up to the north side of the Cairngorms for a reccy. Options are walking if snow-line too high, full ski tour if it looks favourable and if all else fails the beach at Findhorn!
If snow of any significance is found I shall report findings here.

Just peeped at the weather report for The Lecht - seems like a good chance of snow on Thursday and low temperatures afterwards. I wonder if they do get early snow whether they'd be ready to open?

Glencoe cranking up the snowmaking, is this is a test or are they trying to get some sort of base down??

My understanding of the Glencoe snowmaking is that they intend to get a base down and get something open at the start of December each year

Established base camp in Tomintoul, very snowy this morning across from Carrbridge, Grantown and Bridge o Brown.
Walking up the Avon valley in the morning with my "metoffice" mate who thinks the plateau to Macdui is the route for Sunday. Fingers crossed for viz and light winds.

Glenshee haven’t wasted any time between getting planning permission and installing their double snow factory. It’s visible on their webcam just to the left of the cafe. snowHead

There's been overnight snow at all the ski centres. Glencoe looks like it's received the most. Decent falls at Nevis and Glenshee too.

Surprisingly good snow cover up Cairngorm today after more recent snowfall. Snow was more consolidated than I expected and managed to keep skis on from the carpark to the summit and back without and bumps or scrapes! Good to stretch the legs for the first ski of the winter.

Great photo !

Glenshee looks pretty good so far too, although Glencoe coverage still a bit thin.

Blinkin cold in Edinburgh today, so lets hope it holds and consolidates.

But if there is a dump of snow will any resort be ready to open earlier than they anticipated? The forecast for The Lecht is more snow tomorrow. If they do open I'll be there!!

Cant see it, tbh - unless you are doing your own thing touring per Charlie Wilkinson above - they all need to get their ducks in a row re staffing / safety etc etc and cant just start up whenever they fancy.

Also, that picture is of Caingorm - it would be slightly ironic if they had the best snow of all the resorts while also being completely disinterested in the skiing industry..............

Shame that the Cairngorm funicular 'problem' doesn't look like being resolved (in any form) any time soon.
Looking at growing snow cover on FB piccies, but not sure if there's going to be any real useable uplift for us non-touring types (bar Shanks's).
Read somewhere that they're proposing to limit daily ticket numbers to 1,000... Will that many even bother to go?
