Overnight snow showers on an easing Westerly gave way to increasingly scattered snow showers during Thursday, with some good bright spells later in the afternoon. Though the overnight snow fall was not a significant storm, with the moderating west wind the best new accumulations were to be found on the parts of the mountain which already had a decent base, meaning that while terrain remains restricted the surface conditions were excellent giving good if limited sport.
The Ciste Fairway caught a good deal of the fresh and pisted out to give nice easy sport on machine packed powdery snow, the Gully site was mostly unpisted with fresh snow. By far the best riding is on the Upper Cas which has filled in further with last nights snow and was offering excellent machine packed fresh on the skiers right of the T-bar and fresh powdery snow to track up on the other side. The upper Gunbarrel has improved and experts can ski/ride to the mid-station, but the less experienced are advised to take the Zig Zags but some walking is required that way, but it's worth it if you get a few runs in on the Cas Tow which is loading from the Gunbarrel
A general thin cover of snow over the mountain, with a bit more wind expected on Friday there should be some drifting which will help redistribute the snow and hopefully start to fill in some other areas. Photos from Winterhighland. You can send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org .
