View down from the Cliffy Chair.

The Fly Paper, still complete.

 
Aonach Mor with the Goose Gully, Warrens, and the Nid Ridge in view.

Almost prefect blue sky above Meall a' Bhuiridh. Still reasoanble cover on the upper runs.

Argo takes skiers to the Cliffhanger Chair, but it's little more than a five minute walk!

he view the other way, looking up the Main Basin from T-bar.

Spring snow and blue sky, makes a good day in the Main Basin.

Mist drifts up from the Moor.

The spring run still has a good width of snow in the gully.

Escaping the Trap....

Inversion traps the mist in the valley below.

Report
The West has faired somewhat better than the East over the past couple of weeks, and though the lower mountain has largely being stripped, there is still some decent sport to be had on the upper slopes of Meall a' Bhuiridh, with the Main Basin, Happy Valley, Spring Run and Fly Paper still complete. A good day on Saturday thanks to fine weather and often blue skies.

With cooler conditions today the snow probably wont soften that much, but the thaw is over for the time being, and there is certainly a reasonable base to build from, on the middle slopes the Canyon and the Wall still retain an almost complete cover, and the Plateau Poma track wouldn't need much new snow.

Thanks to George Paton for Saturday's photos.
