We strongly reccomend a visit (from your mobile or tablet) to akqa.com’s Winterlands site – most impressive.
As an alterrnative you can always check out the actual snow situation at one of Scotland’s leading ski areas at the Glencoe Mountain resort.
It’s touch and go currently as to whether or not the facilities will be operational over the holiday period.

We have lost the lower slopes but the poma uptrack is complete for access only. Middle and upper slopes still have good cover of soft snow.”
29/12/14 (am) – “Most runs on the mountain have a good cover of snow some a little thin and narrow in places. Upper mountain snow is firm but grippy with some scraped patches in high traffic areas.”
27/12/14 (pm) – “Poma, cliffy and Wall T-bar all expected to run tomorrow morning. The Groomers have been working hard and we hope to have the Main Basin T-Bar running by lunchtime.”
26/12/14 (am) - “We are going for a 10am start .. Plateau Poma piste involves a bit of combat skiing. Now the daylight has come in we have assessed the runs and unfortunately the wind has scoured huge areas, so Mugs Alley a no go. Tickets £20 adults and £15 kids.”
24/12/14 (pm) – “Heavy snow today has improved conditions on the hill. We expect to be able to offer some skiing on Boxing day. We won`t know how much until we get up the hill on the 26th.”
