The Cairnwell and A93 from the top of Carn Aosda T-bar.

Cairnwell Summit, and chair and Tiger from Carn Aosda Top Terminal.

Blowing snow and Sun at the top of Coire Fionn Pomas.

Sunnyside Chairlift and Chair Runs and Grianan Run beyond.

Sunnyside Runs still lack much depth, but much improved surface conditions.

Looking towards Meall Odhar Poma from near bottom of Tom Dearg.

Looking up to Meall Odhar.

A view through a snow fence!

Carn Aosda T-bar track, good off-piste sport to right (A93) side of Tow.

Report
Scattered snow showers are slowly topping up a powdery layer of snow on top of a firm base, giving the best sport of the 2005 season at Glenshee with terrain on offer for all abilities.

The best on piste sport for good skiers/boarders is over on the fenced runs by the Coire Fionn Pomas, Butchart's is good for learners who have mastered the lower nursery slopes and Claybokie.

Still some thin areas where the base was limited prior to this cold spell, such as on Sunnyside and Meall Odhar, but generally very good surface conditions now. Glas Maol Poma track is complete, but not much base on such aspects, so more snow needed to fill the runs more, similar story on the Tiger and steepest pitches of the Cairnwell. Fingers crossed for more snow from this cold spell, but when the weather is settled get out and enjoy what's there as its the best of the winter so far.

Thanks to Jake Brown for these photos from Glenshee, if you have been out send your pics to pix@winterhighland.com and we'll get them online asap.
