You can expect to see snow on the summits of at least the the higher mountains from October right through to May, or perhaps even later. As the winter progresses, the snow line descends and is frequently down to 1000 feet or less. We display a daily weather forecast which gives not only a general outlook for the day, and for the following two days, but also forecasts mountain weather conditions, including snow line, freezing level, wind speed

Winter walking & climbing

The Highlands are beautiful at any time of year, but especially in the winter, when the mountains are covered with snow. Getting about is not difficult, as the roads are gritted regularly. Many restaurants and attractions remain open all year, including the mountain cable car at the Nevis Range, which is open to skiers and non-skiers alike. The location of Burnbank makes us an ideal base for visiting the area’s many and varied sights.


The Highland Council, together with the Scottish Executive operates a fleet of well over 300 gritters & snow ploughs, swinging into action from the beginning of October. Except in the most extreme conditions, it is rare that roads are blocked, but of course, care should be exercised whilst driving. We would suggest there is probably no need to rush out for a set of snow chains for your car tyres..

Road conditions

The Nevis Range ski centre is only ten minutes drive away and is also serviced by buses. Although sufficient snow obviously can’t be guaranteed, the skiing season is usually in full swing by the third week of January into March. We display up-to-date ski reports on a daily basis, which give details of snow & weather conditions at the Nevis Range, which are the UK’s highest ski slopes.
