Ski resort bosses in the Highlands are hopeful that snow sports can continue until the end of April.
Cairngorm Mountain, which welcomed more than 1,600 people on Saturday alone, said the tops of some of the 6ft-high piste fences were only now starting to emerge from the snow.
High winds kept the numbers down yesterday with only the hardiest enthusiasts venturing on to the slopes.
The huge numbers on Saturday were boosted by snowboarders taking part in the Vans Hi-Standard Series competition.
Spokesman Colin Kirkwood said: “It may be British Summer Time in the valley but it’s still winter up here and there’s some really great ski-ing to be had.
“You can still ski all the way down with depths of up to 14ft in places where the gullies have filled in. We had over 2,300 the previous weekend and we expect to keep attracting people right through April.”
Nevis Range also said it was having its best winter since 2010.
Marian Austin, managing director, said the resort near Fort William had experienced record snowfalls.
“It is amazing cover for this time of year,” she added.
Nevis Range and Glencoe still have depths of up to 16ft.
However, the Lecht in Aberdeenshire has been closed since March 8 because it has run out of snow.
Glenshee was also closed due to inadequate snow cover.
Scotland’s five mountain ski areas generated more than £29million after a near record-breaking season last year.
No fewer than 290,996 “skier days” were recorded during the long season, which started in late November and lasted well into late May.
