Report
As promised on this mornings early update, the day of the 2005 season so far, with the early cloud and snow flurries soon clearing to give largely unbroken sunshine from a clear blue sky overhead, and excellent packed powder snow underfoot.

Indeed there are still some areas of powder to be found off-piste, including on the East Lady, though remember this is a boulder field, so look out for the rocks!

The runs in the Top Basin are in great nick with excellent conditions for learning in the Ptarmigan Bowl. For more advanced skiers and boarders the M2, Overyonder and Aonach in the Ciste and the Lady and M1 on the Cas side are offering good sport, with unpisted skier packed powder on the Lady.

The Cas is offering great surface conditions and terrain for intermediates. The best route to the Daylodge is via the Daylodge Poma and M2, the Carpark Runs and Home Road are complete but they are narrower and have some thin areas. There are also beginner areas around the Daylodge and Sheiling, but it's better to head to the top. Sheiling Tow can run if required.
