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 :-)

Does anyone know of the current situation regarding Covid rules and skiing in Scotland?
Would it be more possible to do now than it was in April and May (i.e. when it was not possible at all!)?
Thanks.

I skied in Feb at the Coe & Glenshee, there has been no official word about skiing but as it is an outdoor activity my guess is they will open - maybe limit the tickets.

The issue could be with gondolas (Nevis) or funicular (CG), but anything with outdoor open chairs and drags should be good. With gloves and buffs you are pretty much covered for PPE.

No problem with the funicular at CG - it is inoperable!

The current situation with skiing in Scotland is that there isn't any! Razz

I think the main problem as I see it is zones that in the new "very high" are advised not to travel in/out

 After all it is free Go on u know u want to!

Thanks for the Covid info.
Was a shame things were shut down completely in March instead of just managing gondolas and indoor spaces (lift pass, ski hire, restaurants etc.) but I guess it was all bit more of a panic back then.

I'm guessing the new Glen Coe chair hasn't been built yet? Before Covid came along, got a feeling it was due to be installed in time for this coming season?

New chair building is underway Very Happy - there were pics in the summer on the
Winterhighland forum of the pylons. Don't know how far they have got though....

Pylons are up but no rope on yet. I think completion was dependent on making enough money over the summer. You can see one of the pylons on the Corie Pollach Webcam.

Imagine the thrill of not having to walk uphill to access the Main Basin T-Bar / Rannoch Poma.

Its almost like how a ski area should be designed............. Very Happy

@mountainaddict, I was there on Saturday and did the red MTB route that goes past where they are building- there is definitely work going on as we were warned about it being v muddy and big ditches been dug across the trail when we bought lift tickets. Machinery about too. Should have asked when it would be ready.

Never skied Glencoe as I live in the east but if the biking is anything to go by I'll definitely have to get up that extra hour earlier and head over there for a day instead of Glenshee. The staff were really friendly too

Thanks for the Glencoe info. Been there twice in recent years and loved it! However, first time you had to dodge the grass and mud on the button lift, the second time you just had to walk (from top of access chair).
Looks like the new chair is shown on this piste map.

I’m afraid we will still have to imagine it because the new chair will only go a bit higher than the Poma. You will still need to walk (a tiny bit) from the top of the cliff hanger chair, although from the top of the wall tbar you can usually skate across to the main basin tbar.

I think the Plateau poma was only built in the 90s. Before that you always had to walk across the plateau starting from a lower point where the single person access chair terminated. Laughing

That's right. My first visit was in 1988/89-ish and you had to slog across the Plateau. It was an absolute bonus when the poma went in!

Been plenty of times since in late season when there's been no snow on the Plateau - and the resulting hike to the Cliffhanger Chair is just like the good old days Laughing
