We've been providing Scottish Snow Reports on-line since the autumn of 1994, we're the oldest national web based snowsport reporting service around. Incidentally the only national winter sports reporting service that's been on-line longer, is also Scottish, the SportScotland Avalanche Information Service, who launched their website in 1993!
The Winterhighland website is now operated by Winterhighland Limited (Registered in Scotland number SC274872) and established in October 2004 to take over the running and operation of the Winterhighland web-site. We're a small privately owned company based in the City of Inverness, capital of the Highlands,
Ours is a very specialist website in terms of content and purpose, and that requires a specialist Content Management System to manage the site. With the exception of our Forums which are based on a heavily modified version of the open source Phorum, all site design, content management and database design are in-house, built by our webmaster and Managing Director, Alan Mackay. Ongoing support and App Development by Jamie Riley, iPhone app data server and mind boggling compression algorithms by Jesus A.Alvarez Gonzale.
The site is maintained and moderated by our small team of moderators (Alan and Jamie x2) and while we are very grateful to the many registered members whom contribute content to the site, we must offer a special thanks to our most regular contributor, h11lly (aka Helen) for her tireless effort with her cameras even in the worst of weather!

Winterhighland has a small team of moderators who keep a watchful eye over both our forums and our report servers. We operate a reactive system of moderation, that is we don't moderate posts prior to them appearing on the site, as this would significantly delay a genuine report from being available, we check the site regularly for unsuitable material and will if necessary either remove the offending item, or hide it from public viewing and ask the user who posted it to remove the offending parts.
However we can not monitor the site 24/7/365, and occasionally a problem item does get through. If you are a registered member, you can report a post by clicking the report a post link. If you are not a registered member or you are not logged on, please email us (address at foot of this page), with a copy of the report. Your assistance in maintaining our site is appreciated.
