Distant tracks - lot of leg work required!

Haggis Trap (or rather lack off) centre of photo.

Main Basin and Happy Valley. Main Basin corduroy motorway in the morning.

Total cover right across the river at the base of the Cliffy. No queues on mid-mountain lifts.

Wall and Canyon from the Plateau. Wall excellent.

Spring Run from the Plateau Poma.

No gully visible on Thrombosis.

Mugs Alley in fantastic shape, great riding for all abilities from first timers in the snowsports school up.

Low level Blue Access Run is skiable to the far out corner of the Red bike track to 1450ft, 5min hoof back to Carpark along path.

Happy Valley catching the afternoon Sun as the Main Basin starts to fall into shadow.

Telemarking on Happy Valley.

Main Basin is a wide cruisey motorway including through the Haggis Trap!

At the top of the Main Basin T-bar, Kingshouse Hotel far below.

Looking down the Cayon to the Cliffhanger drive.

Skiers on the top leg of Mugs Alley.

Top queue usually no more than a few minutes, mid-mountain pretty much ride on today.

A small selection of photos from today so far at Glencoe, not a cloud in the sky. A few lobsters around already - Suncream and Shades essential!

All runs on the mountain are complete to the top of the Access, most having a wide and deep cover and there is great riding on offer for all ability levels.

On the days that do get the Sun next week, the East Ridge area should be sublime as the steep Eastern aspects catch the morning rays loosening to perfect Spring Snow - keep an eye on the forecasts!

Still some great loose fresh snow around though, the Wall and Main Basin riding beautifully. More Pix and fuller report in the evening.
