Thousands of people flocked to two ski resorts in the North-east over the weekend.
The Lecht and Glenshee ski centres in Aberdeenshire saw record numbers for this time of the year with the Lecht being at full capacity on Sunday.
The freezing temperature across the North-east led to a good covering of snow at both resorts, with people dusting off their skis and snowboards to head to the slopes.
Glenshee Ski Centre had more than 5,300 people on the slopes over the weekend – making it one of the centre’s busiest weekends in a couple of years.
Some of the centre’s runs are currently closed due to the recent storms, however, it didn’t discourage people from heading to the ski resort.
Graham McCabe, managing director at Glenshee, said: “The weekend just past was a great one for us.
“It was the first weekend that we were open, so for a first weekend it was the best we have had in several years now.
“January is normally steady, but to get over 5,000 people on the slopes in a weekend was brilliant.
“The snow conditions are great at the moment so we hope that continues for the rest of the season.
“Although we didn’t have all the runs open people still enjoyed themselves.”
He added that the reopening of the Invercauld Bridge, which was damaged during Storm Frank had been a “massive bonus” as they rely on food and equipment coming in from other areas.
Closer to Aberdeen, the Lecht Ski Centre was open for the second weekend running and was full to capacity on Sunday with around 3,000 people taking advantage of the favourable conditions over the weekend.
A spokeswoman for the Lecht Ski Centre said: “This past weekend was really busy for us and it was fantastic to see so many people on the slopes.
“On Sunday we were actually full to capacity with around 2,000 people on the slopes, which left our car park full .”
“Although this weekend wasn’t as busy as mid-term it was still very busy for this time of year.”
