While testing new snowboard gear in the Alps is always a pleasure, it did mean that we missed the start of the Scottish season. After a soggy few weeks in which floods were causing more problems than snowfall, the white stuff finally arrived – and along with it, tales of terrific days had in all five of Scotland’s resorts; Glencoe, Glenshee, Nevis Range, Cairngorm and the Lecht.
The Whitelines photo beacons were duly lit, and like the Rohirrim you answered – even with tip-top conditions, it seems there’s always time for an Insta-slam. Here’s a roundup of your best photos from the Scottish shred:

The early bird gets the worm – especially where Scottish snowboarding is concerned. As well as the benefits of beating the queues and bagging a good parking space, you might also get treated to sights like the one Lianne got at Cairngorm. Beautiful.
