Scotland ends snow season with new initiatives a success
Scotland’s last ski area still opening for the 2015-16 ski season closed on 8th May. To try to encourage attendance, ski area have slashed more than two thirds off the cost of a weekend ticket, charging £20 instead of £65.50. The action attracted around 900 skiers and boarders.
Scotland’s season started late this year after a warm, wet and windy end to 2015. But stable conditions in February led to good business in the school holidays period and whilst Easter was too warm for several easterly ski areas to maintain snow cover.
