Good Morning Snow Riders, the Lecht is scheduled to restart the 2012 Season on Wednesday Morning!!
From breaking warm temperature records just a week ago, winter has finally returned to Highland Scotland and the Lecht is set to restart the 2012 Scottish Snowsports season at 8.30am on Wednesday, a full 38 days after the last lift served riding. Get up and play while you can!
At dusk on Tuesday the plan was to operate all beginner lifts and the Buzzard Poma on the main runs. The Buzzard side has caught the bulk of the snow with a full cover of groomed machine packed fresh snow between the fences and plenty of options for off-piste lines.
The Piste Bashers have been working on the Snowy Owl, Grouse and Eagle runs on the main side of the road, but some areas of these runs was scoured by the strong wind overnight and at dusk needed a bit more. However with further snow showers expected overnight and ongoing drifting it maybe possible to open some more main lifts during Wednesday.
