A snowsports centre has started looking at the potential of offering overnight accommodation to its visitors.

Nevis Range and the University of the Highlands and Islands' Centre for Recreation and Tourism have launched a survey to gauge interest in the plan.

People have been asked if they would stay in dormitories, chalets or luxury-style accommodation.

The survey also asks how much visitors would be willing to pay and how long they would stay.

Nevis Range had its busiest day for 10 years on 16 February when almost 1,700 skiers and snowboarders took to the slopes.

The resort was not able to operate all of its lifts because some were still buried under unprecedented amounts of snow.

Glencoe Mountain, another of Scotland's five outdoor ski centres, already offers holiday accommodation called Hobbit Houses.
