The police have issued a warning about road problems at the Glencoe Mountain Resort and Nevis Range ski centres, which are now at full capacity.
Anyone making their way to either of the centres is urged to turn back as the approaches to both are experiencing heavy volumes of traffic – which is now hampering the efforts of gritters.
Inspector Jen Valentine said: “We understand that there is currently a six-mile tailback of traffic heading towards Glencoe.
“Unfortunately, drivers have decided to abandon their cars on the approach road as the car park is full, which is obstructing gritter vehicles trying to get through.
“Similarly at Nevis range, cars are also being abandoned on the access road and there is a risk that tailbacks may affect the A82.
“These abandoned cars at both centres are posing a risk so I am urging anyone who has left their car to return and move it. Any cars not moved will be seized.
“It is great that so many people are wanting to take advantage of the weather and skiing available in our area, but public safety on the roads is crucial and has to be our priority.”
