Forth One presenter Grant Stott braved some wintry chills to broadcast live from Midlothian Snowsports Centre.

On air for four hours, he enjoyed a birds-eye view of the £600,000 of improvements to the centre, the majority of which are now complete.

The event was the culmination of a week of competitions run in conjunction with the radio station.

The new 210 metre extension to the dry ski slope on the hill – the longest dry ski slope in Europe - is visible from miles away. Finishing touches are being made to the improvement works, and Hillend staff are readying themselves for the busy winter snowsports season.
