North-east skiers have been warned by police that weather warnings remain in place and to only travel if necessary.
Police Scotland reminded to people heading for ski slopes across the country this weekend the yellow weather warning is still in place.
While the heavy fresh snowfall on the slopes is very inviting, it has fallen on the roads too and excessive traffic in these areas will quickly cause roads to become blocked. Snow showers are set to lessen over the next few days, but drifting snow will continue to be a problem on many of Scotland’s roads.
Superintendent Helen Harrison said: “The high risk of disruption is likely to continue with a yellow weather warning across many areas of Scotland for the next few days, so we will be advising drivers to take extra care in these areas.”
She added:“We understand that people want to make the most of the snow, but conditions on the roads, especially on the routes at higher levels, remain hazardous and the yellow weather warning does not mean that roads are now clear.”
