Bluebird skies on Sunday on the Aonach Mor Summit.

This view is now available on the new summit webcam!

Summit Runs are in good shape and well groomed.

Upper Goose is good, gully narrows into a natural pipe lower down, good fun for advanced riders when visibility good.

Looking up Goose Gully, decent riding for more experienced skiers and boarders.

Going up the Goose Tow. Approach to loading area is thin and scrapped after heavy weekend traffic.

Thanks to Nigel for the photos - click for more.

The Summit Runs and upper Goose are in good shape, but the bottom final section of the approach to the Goose T-bar is fairly trashed after a busy weekend, so go carefully here - best snow has been on the T-bar side of the fence below the Timing Hut to just above the approach to the tow.

Sidewinder and Cat-track are giving decent turns though fairly narrow. Lower down the wrong side of the fence of the Fairway is in reasonable shape, but the lower slopes do have thin areas, but access around the open slopes is OK in terms of things linking together. It is possible to put your skis on at the door of the Gondola and ski to the Linnhe thanks to snow making, for access to the mountain. However cover on the beginner runs is very thin, Glencoe is better for early intermediates at present, while Nevis is the better option for more advanced riders.

SE winds are forecast for early in the week which is likely to affect uplift operations.
