The West Coast caught the heaviest falls of snow mid-week last week with around 18inches of fresh powder high up and a foot around the top of the Gondola.
This greatly freshened up the lower mountain and there is good riding from Summit to the Gondola with excellent surface conditions, machine packed powder on a firm a base where pisted. Much quieter than the Eastern areas mid-week meant Nevis was the place to seek out weekend powder stashes, with the cold settled conditions maintaining the mid-week powder in perfect nick for the weekend.
There is still extensive powder fields to explore and lay fresh tracks in for those prepared to expand a bit of effort either on touring gear or on foot for returning from Spikes, Summit Gully and Coire an Lochain. Front of the mountain has been extensively tracked out, but is now moving from being chopped up to nice skier packed powder and the cover is currently very good on the front of the hill.
Please consider the latest avalanche forecast / report if going off the beaten track beyond the officially open terrain in the snowsports area. Check with Ski Patrol for the latest news on the Back Corries.
