:: Who, What, When?
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 operated by Winterhighland Limited (Registered in Scotland number SC274872). We're a small privately owned company based in the City of Inverness, capital of the Highlands, operating out of Inverness, Glasgow and Glencoe.

The site's user generated content (reports and forum posts) are moderated with the help of a small team of volunteer moderators and we are also very grateful to the many registered members whom contribute content to the site.

:: I have found inappropriate content. Do you moderate posts?
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 by registered users 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. Your assistance in maintaining our site is appreciated.
