The ski areas of the UK saw good snow and a rise in skiers and snowboarders out on the slopes. It follows a poor start to the season.

The cold weather and good snow saw a busy time for Scotland's ski areas.

"The  three weeks covering the Scottish and English half-term holidays were amazingly busy everywhere. Although this was hardly surprising given the exceptional snow and weather conditions, we were delighted to find that our 'skier day' figures for those weeks are way ahead of any other recent season," said the Chair of Ski-Scotland, Heather Negus.

It wasn't just families with school-age children taking of the  conditions.

Team GB Winter Olympian snowboarder, Ben Kilner, was at Glenshee last weekend.

"After spending most of the season snowboarding in the USA it has been amazing to come back home to perfect conditions here in Scotland! All resorts here have had great snow and perfect weather making for an epic day's shred," said Ben.

 "This season may have got off to a late start but it's now offering superb snow and settled weather, with more of both forecast.Now that the busy half term period is over, skiers and snowboarders can enjoy some brilliant sliding with few queues, particularly midweek," added Heather Negus.
