Last Update 23.19hrs on Tuesday 22nd Apr 2014

Top Basin has great cover in the Ptarmigan and Ciste Bowls, but the Fairway is closed. For a longer green run try the Ciste Bowl or head down to the mid-mountain and give Coire Cas a blast. The Cas is offloading shy of the top, but from there down is in good shape and has been offering up the best spring snow.

The Gunbarrel is loaded and flat, so about as easy as it gets. If you must avoid it the top 2 Zig Zags are good, Chicken Gully also has plenty of snow (but there is a hole to avoid at the bottom - opportunity for an early bath). White Lady is in great shape once onto the run proper for more advanced skiers and boarders with a wide runout to the mid-station. Approach via Traverse side of M1 Poma and then cross over the up track at the gap.

Terrain Park:

Ptarmigan Park has a range of features for all ability levels, from ride on flat boxes to a massive kicker. Three banks of kickers, largest at the top, progressively smaller towards Ptarmigan Tow drive.

Marquis Well half pipe is open daily conditions permitting. Also a quarter pipe below it. Both are situated just above the Ptarmigan Tow and are hike to features.

See Saturday's Pix from the Slopes to the right of this report for photos showing the park features.
