View towards the Eagle Pomas.

The grouse is getting worn on the Steeper pitches. Snowy Owl run better.

View over the nursery slopes to the Snowy Owl run which is in decent nick and full width.

The piste bashers have turned Wren an not very appealing colour - both the Wren Tow and Magic Carpert now in use.

Report
Most runs are skiable at the Lecht and some are considerably better than others. Falcon, Buzzard and Eagle runs are narrow at the bottom, but on the Eagle this can be avoided using the shorter Poma. There is not much depth, so some worn areas appearing esp on the steeper pitches of the Grouse and the Eagle, but the snow has consolidated and is firm packed so should hold together for Saturday. Snowy Owl run is in good nick.

Still ample beginner areas though the cover is thin. Both the Wren Tow and Magic Carpert are in use on the Wren Run. Subject to demand and weather all uplift is scheduled to open on Saturday.

Thanks to Euan Mcdonald (EMCD11) for the photos. Please send your photos to pix2007@winterhighland.info .
