Scottish snowboard season so far…..

Well folks its been a frustrating 2015/16 season thus far with the latest start to snow sports in years.

Now the old boys leaning on the bar supping a foamy brew will tell us this is normal and we’ve just been spoiled in the past few seasons, perhaps but with so many locals depending on it for business or pleasure one has to be stay up beat. The snow always comes back.

February and the busy half term are weeks away and the current snow pack is taking a pounding from mild winds…….the snow always comes back.
