Going up the Alpha Tow. Track is as flat and level and easy to ride as it gets.

Looking over to the Quad from the Goose T-bar. One continuous big snow field to the foot of the Quad.

Looking up the Goose from the T-bar.

Braveheart Chairlift open with nice covering of fresh.

Linnhe Button open for quick access to rest of mountain and good novice runs. Rope Tow still excellent.

At the top of the Summit Tow.

The hidden gem for those progressing from greens to blues, Rob Roy T-bar runs all superb.

Looking down Yockies to the Top of the Gondola. Several Park features to skiers right of the outside fence.

Report
A largely bluebird morning after 3-4 inches of new snow over the previous 24 hours, but cloud is bubbling up again in the afternoon, so the cycle might repeat with a chance of some snow showers later afternoon into Saturday.

There is excellent riding across the mountain whether for first timers on the nursery slopes by the cafe, progressing to the longer greens and gentler blues on the lower half of the mountain accessed by the Alpha, Rob Roy Tows and the Quad Chair or looking for the steepest drops over the back!

The Goose remains one huge snowfield across the T-bar to the Quad Chair and this basically carries on down the Allt Sneachda with still extensive cover across the Fairway and Far West. For improving intermediates the lower and middle at Nevis when in such good condition represents the most extensive intermediate terrain directly chair accessed.

These runs and the Quad can absorb large numbers so little risk of queuing issues even if it gets busier over Easter weekend.

Rob Roy is a hidden gem for those snow plough turners progressing from the shorter greens, it's in excellent condition with amazing views to the North and the imposing Nid Ridge towering above to the South. Even for more confident skiers the runs to/from Rob Roy and Rob Roy itself are good fun warm up before heading further up the mountain.

Braveheart Chairlift was open from fairly early on Thursday morning and should be open daily through the Easter period wind / surface conditions permitting.
