All runs complete with fantastic sport for all ability levels from novices taking their first steps in the Ptarmigan Bowl to experts laying tracks on the steeps of the West and East Walls.
With the snow of the past week largely falling on light winds resulting in practically ski anywhere cover above mid-station level, however do bear in mind a high avalanche risk - the Coire Cas Headwall slide on Thursday, so take heed of any avalanche closures and don't venture to far out on Coronation Wall just in case. West Wall and Ciste Gully were open, and along with the East Wall will be assessed in the morning.
All runs to the Cas Carpark are complete, but beware of the odd thin patch low down but their easily avoidable. The M2 and Daylodge provides a fantastic long blue run from the Top Basin back to the Base Station. Should parking in the Ciste be required, experts can return to the Ciste Carpark via the Aonach Ridge or the Loagh Mor Return.
Some softening below about 3000ft in the afternoon sun, will crisp up the surface for the morning again, breaking down to machine packed powder where groomed and either with use or during the day softening on unpisted areas. Mix of machine packed and skier tracked fresh up top.
