Queue for the Access Chair vanished after lunch, just a couple of minutes wait.

Going back up the Access Chair in the afternoon, lines done on both sides of the river.

Don't ski or board - get up for a scenic chairlift ride while Rannoch Moor is blanketed in snow.

Looking up Ski Tow Gully, not last years depths but still pretty impressive.

Top of the Main Basin late afternoon, some magical light as dusk came in a wee bit later.

View down to the base from the fenced Access Run, being groomed in the morning but there are lots of lines doable.

Did you use the WiFi at the Summit today? Battered by debris & exposed to the elements for over a week and still online!

Boarder takes a breather low down on the red Access Run, great cover for so low down.

Skier heads past the top of the Carpark as the light fades away.

Not skied this one before, good skier packed snow inside the deer fence, cut in from the short tree section of the red bike track.

Tree riding at Glencoe - who'd have thought it?! Tracks from the firebreak onto the Dryslope.

Lots of people having fun sledging behind the Cafe late in the day.

How's this for a view from a sledge park?

Looking back over to Creag Dhub - various lines explored today, some good some more of an adventure than people intended.

Stronger winds and road problems in the East added to the numbers heading West on Sunday, leading to an exceptionally busy day at Glencoe. Sorry not that many photos from up on the hill as mostly spent the day moving IT stuff around the place!

With summit to moor descents of 2400ft vertical on offer with the Main Basin T-bar back in action, many people made a point of working their way back to the Summit each run. Main Basin seemed to be the busiest lift in the afternoon, while the Access Chair got on top of the earlier massive queue and was only a couple of minutes wait in the afternoon.

Often the low level Access Run starts out OKish in the morning and is butchered lower down later in the day, but it's stood up to a hammering all weekend and is still in really good shape. That's perhaps the truest indication as to how much snow there is on Rannoch Moor! The thaw/freeze cycle below the top of the Access Chair last Thursday into Friday also helped by giving something of a base even at low levels.

So many options for getting from the Summit to the foot of the Access Chair, should be able to explore lots of them on Monday. Cracking day forecast and being mid-week it's only £25 for an adult lift pass at Glencoe. It would be rude not to!
