Between the top of the Poma and Coire Pollach Tow.

Poma run mostly decent, a bit thin / worn right at the bottom.

Looking up the Plateau Poma run.

Plenty of snow for sledging and should be pretty quick sledging tomorrow!

Cliffhanger Chair open to mid-mountain, it's hoped to open the Main Basin T-bar Thursday.

Looking down Old Mugs Alley to the Plateau Cafe.

Old Mugs Alley has a wide but fairly thin cover, can go just about anywhere on the Plateau area.

Mugs Alley is complete, but thin on the upper section but gives access to Rankin's Return.

Report
Heavy wintry showers coming in this evening at Glencoe should be giving a top up on the mountain having fallen as sleet at carpark level on the edge of Rannoch Moor.

Snow showers during Wednesday, but was fairly wet snow and in slightly milder temperatures the snowpack became decidedly sticky off the heavier trafficked areas. Snow is likely to firm up a bit for tomorrow but should groom up well.

There is a wide general cover across the Plateau, but not much depth as there hasn't been all that much drifting at Plateau level, this means you can criss cross the Plateau just about anywhere but beware of thin areas.

Main Basin T-bar is hoped to open on Thursday giving access to Happy Valley and possibly Etive Glades, but Patrol will need to check these out again at first light.

With the wind swinging round to an Easterly quadrant drier and brighter conditions expected in the West Highlands over the coming days. Not all the terrain will be open, but there should be some good days riding to be had for what by historic standards at Glencoe is still very much early season turns.
