Can no one stop this wind?

Skiing conditions are brilliant at Glencoe. But the wind is wrecking everything.

I would hate to run a ski resort in this country. Fancy having brilliant snow but no access to it! Andy and his team are working flat out to repair 5 lift sheds blown away in the wind, only to find more damage with the next gale.

Their new Microlodge development should open in the Spring. Its way behind schedule because of all the storm damage

Once the wind settles down they should be in great shape for the season with a deep base on the top and mid mountain.

Andy, you and the team are heroes. And the forecast for wind looks ok for next week.
