Summit Run, full width and fence depth between the fences, park features beyond fence.

Kicker in the Park.

Looking down the Summit Tow to Loch Eil beyond.

Track on Sidewinder.

View down from near the top of the Summit Button.

Closed sign at top of Switch / Lemming Ridge. People dropped in late afternoon, but ridge still icy. Should soften more Wed.

Kicker in the Summit Park.

Perfect Blue Sky above the Summit Tow on Tuesday afternoon.

Sunny afternoon but with cooler temps and an overcast start the Goose remained hardpacked, best where pisted. Should loosen up Wed.

Looking down across Summit Gully from the summit plateau of Aonach Mor. Firm near the drop in, softening a bit lower down.

Entrance to Summit Gully. Should be superb if the forecast is right for Wednesday, but will be firm at first, check with Patrol.

Looking across CMD to Ben Nevis from Aonach Mor.

Report
After an overcast start it brightened up to give a largely clear and sunny afternoon, but the earlier cloud and cooler daytime temps kept the snow hard packed on the Goose. Best where pisted. Summit Runs loosened up to spring snow in the afternoon, as did the Back Corries away from the top.

If as forecast an early morning cloud burns back to give good sunny spells the warm daytime temps should give some great spring snow and fine conditions for exploring over the back, Summit Gully and Spikes should give epic lines, but they require a fairly epic hike out so are only for the committed and the fit. The hike out of Coire Dubh is shorter and the upper slopes of it down to half way down the Braveheart hold excellent cover. Before going over the back please check with Patrol for the latest though.

Terrain Park has a stack of features for all ability levels from those just starting out in the park upwards. Thanks to H11lly for the photos. More are available in the Public Reports Section. More from Summit Gully in the forum and on HighlandInstinct.
