Access Chairlift in the morning, and a packed Car Park!

The Plateau Poma in action early in the morning.

Zoomed in from Plateau Poma, Bailey's left; Flypaper centre; Spring Run right.

JCB at the old motor house of the top t-bar.

Boarders head for the Canyon from the foot of the Top T-Bar.

Another view from Meall a' Bhuiridh!

The Top T-Bar earned it's keep today! Queues appear long, but thanks to queue management ensuring everyone doubled up, they were mainly in the 5-10minute bracket.

Main Basin from the Top T-Bar.

Looking towards Loch Tulla and Bridge of Orchy.

Making tracks on Meall a' Bhuiridh!

Tracks in the freshies....

Something's up.....

Don't try this at home kids! Gavin from freeskiing team.

Now where to make the next line...

Generally queues were not bad given the numbers thanks to them being well organized. Only Really long queue was for the Access Chair in the morning, but worth it...

Beware of the occasional queue jumper!

Thanks to George Paton, and Tim Stirling for this selection of cracking photos from Glencoe's first day of the 2004 season, a day we may not have seen, but for the dedication of the small core of staff at the 'Coe, the Glencoe Ski Patrol, and the other volunteers who helped staff the lifts.

All runs were offering superb sport, a mix of packed powder on the heavier traffic areas, and fresh untracked powder beyond. Blue sky, blazing sun, and untouched powder to lay tracks on, that's the way to start the season....

Not much else to say, the pix speak for themselves... Just thanks to everyone who made the day possible. Click on the image for the full sized picture.
