Just how good was the Scottish snowboard season?

Glenshee‘s problem this year wasn’t the lack of snow – they too had to deal with buried lifts – but rather the lack of sun. Despite almost 100 days of snowsports between December and April, they counted a grand total of seven sunny days.

Still, when the visibility allowed, there was some great snow to be had on the well-covered runs, and the crew kept the park ticking over as well. One of the highlights was the return of the Scottish Snowboard Cross Championships. Fresh off the back of the Olympics, the event made great use of some rare good weather and knocked it out of the park once again.
