All but a handful of ski resorts have closed early as the Coronavirus pandemic sweeps the globe. In North America too, most resorts have now confirmed early closures.

Skiing is still open in Scotland, Finland and Sweden for the time being.

Scottish ski resorts have said they'll stay open until told otherwise by the UK or Scottish Government.

So what's the skiing like in Scotland right now?

Cairngorm Mountain (35-45cm) was reporting gusty winds today, preventing them for opening above the mid-station. Light snow showers are forecast overnight and during tomorrow with a temperature of -1 to -5C. 

Cairngorm Mountain made the following statement today, "From tomorrow all internal facilities are closed apart from the ticket office and toilets in the Base station. Snow sports out on the mountain will continue, with lifts opening from 9am, updates from around 8am in the morning. Please follow the link for detailed information regarding the COVID -19 partial closure of internal spaces at Cairngorm."

Glenshee Ski Centre (45-60cm) reported soft spring snow conditions today with some runs narrowing. The best skiing at present can be found around the Cairnwell Chairlift or Corriefionn.

Glencoe Mountain Resort (40-65cm) said today, "We're expecting the lightest winds in the morning tomorrow. All runs complete with a wide and deep snow cover. Weather looking good for the weekend."
