Latest from Scotland in the aftermath of the storms
Posted Friday 9th December 2011, 6:24 pm by Dunx

Glenshee earlier today
After some near record breaking storms yesterday itís looking like a couple of Scotlandís resorts will be opening this weekend if the weather allows. Right now, everyoneís assessing snow / damage after the storm but Glenshee and the Lecht are both hoping to get their lifts turning for the first runs of the year. Nevis Range are dealing with a number of lift derailments, Glencoe are without power and Cairngorm still need more snow, but thatís in the forecast.

Conditions at the Lecht and Glenshee are expected to be typical early season with drifts against the snow fences offering some freshness Ė hereís the scene from Glenshee earlier today: www.webcam-hd.com/glenshee.php

Forecast


In the East, winds are expected to drop early on Saturday to 20-25mph with cloud clearing and the possibility of sunshine breaking through in the afternoon. Sunday should also have broken cloud but with increased winds of 40-60mpg gusting 80mph at times. In the West the forecast is similar but with calmer winds than in the East.

Avalanche Risk


Given the volume of snow that has fallen in places and the wind that has accompanied this the avalanche risk is considerable - high with significant wind loading / wind slab risk.

Parks


All efforts have been on getting the roads open and lifts turning so nowhere is expected to have a comprehensive park set-up this year. Glenshee and the Lecht have rails ready to go and will get them out as soon as snow / time allows.
