Zig Zags: Top two legs retain a reasonable cover, thin at the corner. Lower two are getting thn, narrow with stones lying about, lower corners going, caution needed.

Daylodge Poma Run is getting thin/narrow in places.

Cas Tow doing it's stuff. Mid section of Coire Cas, Top third getting ropey now.

Looking down the Gunbarrel, filled well in the Southerly storm compared to the top of the Cas. Sharp edges, snow likely to start hard on Wed.

Snow was soft on Monday, but was much firmer today. Likely to start as hardpack then soften at least lower down as temperatures are forecast to rise with the FL rising to around the tops.

Wind limited both uplift and open runs on Tuesday, provisionally only the funicular is up as expecting to open for Wednesday due to a high wind forecast, but check in the morning. From unofficial reports the top third of the Cas is probably just about gone, possible only the lower 2/3rds of the tow can be used.
