Jackson Hole closed a couple of weeks ago, many Colorado ski resorts had their closing parties this weekend just gone, and some snow-starved resorts across North America closed long ago. But after one of the best snow seasons in recent memory, at least two Scottish ski resorts have announced that they will be staying open into May, and for as long as conditions permit.

Last week trade body Ski-Scotland revealed that skier visit numbers for the season had passed the 200,000 mark, beating the totals in each of the past three seasons. A number that will only increase further the longer they remain open.

Nevis Range and Glencoe both say they’ll open into May and Cairngorm has not yet announced when their season will end.

After a long cold winter, The Highlands were amongst the warmest places in Britain over the weekend with temperatures exceeding 60F in some locations.
