Excellent Cover

:: Weather Conditions
Cold, sun & occasional cloud. +1 deg C at Car Park first things.Very good day overall. Wind generally light I thought with occasional stronger breeze.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Snow in very good shape. Skier packed on the upper slopes, with occasional hard/pack wind scoured areas. A few areas on upper slopes are wind scoured, more so on off piste areas. Mid mountain slopes are excellent and groomed. Never fails to strike me how great an addition Corie Pollack is to the ski area for early skiers. Queues on Main Basin and Wall were OK, 5 mins, maybe a few more, at busy times, maybe a bit longer on Cliff Hanger. Coire Pollack (from the top runs) didn't seem that busy a Plateau Q in the distance didn't looks anywhere as busy as is typical.
All runs are in excellent condition. Rannoch Glades had some wind scoured areas but also some loverly pockets of fresh. Lower part of rock garden near top button had great snow. Wall, Main Basin, probably best areas with nice (batural) jumps on the Main Basin
