This picture was taken on Wednesday after snow had fallen throughout Tuesday and overnight, also closing the road to Cardrona ski field. The snow forced closure of the resort for summer activities on Tuesday, and it was also closed on Wednesday.
Communications Executive Jen Houltham at Cardrona said in total the mountain had 5-10cm of snow, making national headlines on Tuesday. She said snow was becoming more and more common at this time as the years went by.
“Usually we get a decent dump of snow once in January each year now.”
