Terrain park at the Ptarmigan has 4 rails and 5 jumps accessable from the tow, of varying skill levels. There is a half-pipe and quarter pipe just above the tow.

Report
Despite the warm sunny weather over the last couple of weeks, the Top Basin and Coire Cas retains a good base. Several inches of fresh snow over the past couple of days has freshened up the Top Basin to give some great sport, despite the limited area. Well pisted fresh snow on a firm base.

Lower down the Traverse, 105 and Cas are complete to the middle with a mostly good cover, though the very bottom of the Gunbarrel is narrowing. Coire Cas has mix of soft fresh and spring snow on a firm base, nice skiing on the Cas, but Gunbarrel gets very cut up, hard work where it's narrow at the bottom! Cas tow closed during the week, uplift via funicular, Traverse and 105 have good sport still.
