Cranking it up on the Main Basin.

Lapping the Canyon in the afternoon after the T-bar shut.

In the Canyon (but thankfully not in the drink)!

Sledge Park still in good shape.

Aye and if you thought we can get up there as a pair there would be trouble ahead...

The end was neigh early Saturday afternoon.

Getting ready for a lap of the Canyon late afternoon.

Heading into the Canyon.

Looking out over the Main Basin from the T-bar.

Skier passes the waterfall in the Canyon!

That's all folks for lift served riding in the 2019 Scottish Season.

Plateau Cafe Sledge Park will still be open on Monday, no extra charge for use of the sledges.

Sledge Park popular on Easter afternoon in the warm sunshine.

Definitely the end of the season, had there been a bit less wind the past few days might have made into Monday, alas wasn't to be.

Spring snow turns on the Main Basin.

This fellow dived in a pool on the Wall!

On the snowfactory snow on Old Mugs Alley on the Plateau.

Well hoped this would be the penultimate day, particularly with a hot bluebird Easter Monday forecast. Alas the accumulated effect of the breezy conditions combined with the high temperatures and lack of overnight frosts the past few days has meant Easter Day turned out to be closing day for Glencoe and most likely the 2019 Scottish Season for lift served riding.

The Main Basin is still just about complete and there are other skiable runs for those willing to hike, but the legs will have to do the uphill work if you want to ride on Easter Monday.

The Access Chair is open daily weather permitting and there is still a decent sledge park outside the Plateau Cafe and it will be open on Monday. How long the sledge park lasts will depend on the weather / temperature, so keep an eye on the webcam if planning coming up after Monday.

It's not been the Scottish Season we'd all hoped for, but getting to a very late Easter Day has given some very nice spring snow riding in the Sun to round things off. Here's to a better and snowier 2020!
