Looking up through the mist to the Tiger (left of chair) and the top southern edge of Thunder Bowl.

Going the Coire Fionn Pomas. Sweet snow over here!

View out over Fionn Coire to Glas Maol from top of Meall Odhar T-bar.

Machine packed powder where pisted higher up, slightly more packed snow by the road side.

[Tue]. Loads of snow and a loaded up track. This weekend could see the Glas Maol Poma debut for 2009, if the weather behaves.

[Tue]. Glas Maol's Centre Gully is primed for action...

Report
Glenshee has been expanding the open terrain outwards as runs have slowly continued to fill with drifting snow and showers. The snow falls since mid-month haven't been of the spectacular scale some of the West Coast dumps have been, but the improvement has been steady.

Glenshee is now open out to and including the Coire Fionn Pomas. There is an excellent run down from the top of the Caenlochan Poma through Fionn Coire to the Fionn Pomas. Glas Maol has filled up well, the tow track is loaded and Centre Gully is fully complete all the way to below the Poma loading area. All being well if the weather doesn't muck up the final preparations the Glas Maol Poma could debut this weekend. Fingers crossed.

Some good riding on the Cairnwell side too with unprepared steeps for experts around the Tiger and Thunder Bowl off the Cairnwell Chair. Carn Aosda area is filling slowly, was badly scoured in the very severe South winds earlier in Jan, but isn't that far away now.
