SDUK Snowboarding News: Incredible end of season snow in Scotland!

GD Star Rating

It may have looked like summer was finally on its way for most of the UK last week, but in the Scottish Highlands, winter is far from over. Nevis Range had 5cm of fresh snow over the weekend, with depths of up to 30cm of powder in places, from drifting. Patroller Will Davis shared this photo on Sunday, which shows just how great conditions have been!

At Glencoe they had what they described as their best day of the season on Saturday with powder off piste, packed powder on piste, blue skies and no queues.

At Cairngorm they’ve also had some fantastic end of season snow, and conditions were looking perfect for Saturday’s Bag the Pipe halfpipe comp. Unfortunately though, they had the cancel it at last minute as mild temperatures on the Friday followed by a freeze overnight left the pipe rock solid and too unsafe to ride. They do plan to have the halfpipe open again for the rest of the season though.

Although there’s been an increase in temperatures and some high winds since the weekend, which have resulted in a slight deterioration in the snow and restricted uplift, all three areas still envisage being able to open for snowsports for a while yet. So, get up there and enjoy the snow while you can!
