Another sunny day, clear and bright, moderate winds forecast, changing direction may affect ski operations, will continually asses and update.
Spring conditions across the mountain, beginning to soften. Grooming took place last night and is continuing this morning, producing soft corduroy, slightly firmer off the sides.
The route down is by Allt Snechda complete to the bridge but narrow in places.
Warrens is soft flat spring snow, access is via the Summit and Switch with a choice of exit by upper traverse or down to alpha tow and some grass hopping. A short walk is required from the top station to the Quad Chair for access to the upper mountain.

For beginners and snowplough turners, there's the artificial slope, extended by snow up to Tower 2 on Alpha. No snow on the other lower runs.

BACK CORRIES: Limited Patrol, good entrances, soft spring snow everywhere. A walk out over some rock bands via Rob Roy's Return is required.

TERRAIN PARK FEATURES: Rainbow Box, 2 flat rails, 3 Rollers, a barrel tap at the Summit. Kicker and rainbow rail at Cat's Alley and a Flat Box and street rail at the top of the Quad.
