:: Weather Conditions
Grey and damp in the morning, wind got up during the day. Dried out for a while and conditions were pretty good. Strong wind and rain/sleet returned about mid afternoon. Felt like just above zero all day, but the rain was falling as wet snow at car park level when I left around 4pm.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Most of Cairnwell side open, all except Carn Aosda accessible. Some heavy damp snow to begin with, but dried out and improved as the day went on. Tiger/Thunderbowl has good extensive cover and nice snow. Also good on the red racetrack run off Cairnwell T-bar. Other side of the road - best was Caenlochan and Coire Fionn. Some loss of snow of the Caenlochan runs, but still one good run down the left ( facing downhill) of the poma.

:: Snow Cover
Excellent Cover
:: Surface Conditions (out of 5)

:: Weather Conditions
Bluebird powder at first, but cloud cover with hill fog between 11: 00-2pm.

The sun returned in patches in the afternoon

Light wind at the summit, but calm lower down. Snow flurries around lunchtime and wind blown snow kept the slopes fresh throughout the day.

Cold, but not too cold! Got pretty warm near the car park with obvious signs of snow melting.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Very very good! Excellent snow cover down to 400m and skiable, just, to the carpark. The blue run could do with properly pisting and some snow-farming, but the red run was easily skiable, as was the black.

The conditions up top were near perfect with very little ice and easy to ride snow. The uptrack on the plateua poma did, however get very tricky to ride later on due to a pollished, compressed surface under the ski.
