Plateau Cafe this afternoon, snow fell for a good part of the day in no wind.

Plateau Poma doing it's thing on Tuesday. All over cover here, so not that much depth so beware of thin areas.

Old Mugs Alley had something of a base and the shallow gully has filled well.

Bottom of the Cliffhanger Chair. More snow or drifting required to link mid-mountain together to get the top open.

Report
Glencoe got back up and running again on Tuesday with riding on the Plateau runs from the Plateau Poma and the Coire Pollach Tow will also run on Wednesday giving direct access to Old Mugs Alley.

Snow was falling during Tuesday in little wind so there has been an improvement in cover on the Plateau, but there is a general thin all over cover so beware of typical early season conditions.

Snow was a bit sticky today, and this limited pisting however skies started to clear at dusk and a frost is expected overnight which should dry out and crunch up the snow, hopefully allowing more to be pisted in the morning and giving better surface conditions. All Plateau area runs are complete and open, Old Mugs Alley probably the best option.

At the moment more snow or drifting is required to be able to get the mid-mountain linked up and get access to the upper mountain, so at the moment uplift is restricted to the Plateau, but for those willing to hike further up Happy Valley has the best cover.

There is ample good areas for sledging adjacent to the Plateau Cafe, sledges are free you just have to pay for the chairlift to get up there and it's about a 7minute walk from the Top of the Access so wear suitable footwear if going sledging!
