Freezing at all levels first thing in the morning and a fantastic bluebird start to the day! Then as the temperature rose a mixture of sunshine and showers with more prolonged snow during the afternoon.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
It was great to be back skiing at Glencoe after 60 days of no lift served snowsports there. Well done to all the team at Glencoe for getting everthing up and running again after such a long layoff. Those lucky skiers and boarders who managed to get up on Thursday enjoyed a some superb sport with a deep cover of new snow on the upper mountain. The snow is unconsolidated and care is needed where there is no base and rocks lurk underneath but some great lines were being made wide on the Etive Glades and the Rannoch wall. The Spring run was giving great riding with loads of fresh snow and the Main Basin has a wide and full cover so get up there and play while you can!
