T40 in action as the Sun goes down on the plateau.

Glencoe's boss hard at work!

Someone came equipped for extreme sledging on Meall a' Bhuiridh?

Second snow gun in action on the Plateau Poma run.

Looking up Meall a' Bhuiridh, options for tourers and those willing to hike.

Old Mugs Alley almost has enough for a narrow run but it doesn't quite link up with the tow.

Most of the Coire Pollach uptrack is just about OK, but not enough snow to push to complete it.

Moving the snow guns a bit further down the Plateau.

Snow made last night and this morning pushed up and groomed out on the Plateau Run.

Cheers to the snow making... Another 5, 10 or 20 please.

Another cracking day weather wise on the West Coast, but infuriatingly just not quite enough snow to reopen any uplift at Glencoe.

It's not far away from being enough, a wee bit more snow with some drifting would do the trick. The 2 snow guns have been moved further down the Plateau Poma run and if it remains cold then the Poma might be possible by the end of the week even if it doesn't snow more.

For tourers and those willing to hike there are options, the snow is reasonable in the Main Basin through to either lower Ski Tow Gully or Happy Valley, and there looks to be lines down the Wall Crossover.

Sledging is available for free at the Plateau Cafe which is open daily weather permitting. Access Chair running for sightseeing, sledgers and ski tourers, wind permitting.
