After days of blizzards in the West and between 26 and 32 inches of new snow fall on Meall a' Bhuiridh, the weather gave us a one day window to play on Wednesday!
An opportunity many skiers and boarder grasped with both hands with the carpark pretty well full by 10.30 in the morning and a solid line on the Access Chair from just before 9am till late in the day. Great riding on the low level Access Runs to the carpark, the red run is in great shape, but it was the Darkside that was seeing the vast bulk of the traffic with people pushing out and exploring different lines in search of fresh tracks through the morning.
Sadly the weather window is closing as quickly as it opened, with several days more of strong winds forecast and sadly milder with it. Though there should be some snow up on the mountain over the next few days. It's a case of wait and watch and hope the Azores High doesn't cause too much damage as ridges Northwards over the next few days as current indications are that after a horrible Saturday things will settle down with High Pressure over Highland Scotland for Sunday and Monday.
