Staff have been posting on Facebook pictures of the heavy snowfall which has completely covered areas including the resort's ski patrol shed and tows over the last few days.

The area has welcomed consistent snowfall for the last six weeks.

It is claimed that the snowfall has surpassed the weather experienced in 2009 to 2010, which was one of Scotland's best ski seasons.
