Looking up from the foot of the Wall T-bar.

The Wall from the Plateau Cafe, filling in nicely but more depth needed on uptrack.

Plateau Poma is just about there, should be more snow over the next few days.

Deep drifts around the Plateau Cafe.

The fork of Old Mugs Alley back to the Plateau cafe has filled in nicely.

Reasonable cover on the lower part of the Access Run, used to ascend and descend by some tourers on Saturday.

Report
A stormy and snowy week has put a fair bit of snow down in most of the right places at Glencoe, but a bit more snow is required to enable the Piste Bashers to link things together and also for the Top uptracks and Wall T-bar.

Given the nature of the terrain Glencoe always takes more snow to get up and running than the Eastern areas and some thaw/freeze cycling to consolidate the base in the Gullies is preferred too. The FL got up to the top briefly on Sunday morning before falling back during the day, and with more snow forecast to follow hopefully Glencoe isn't too far away from opening.

Pre Christmas openings in the West are really pretty rare, indeed getting open before New Year is relatively unusual for Glencoe. Last season got underway on Boxing Day and this year it looks as if there's at least a fighting chance of beating that start date.

Thanks to Andy for the photos from Saturday.
