19th Feb was the latest opening date at Glencoe.
2006 : No uplift at Glencoe until February 19th. But after that we actually had a surprisingly good season. Some great powder days into April. Reason I remember is that despite the late start the plateau was complete until may day holiday. Which is unusual.
Funnily enough that last 2 winters have almost been the best (2017/18) and worst (2016/17) that I can remember. So who knows what this winter will bring...
It is not uncommon for the skiing to be limited / crap at this time of year.
All the models point towards a return to snowier weather from mid January onward.
Ultimately Scottish skiing depends on the wind building up big drifts in the gullies. So far we simply haven't had any big atlantic winter storms to build a base.
