Going up the Fiacaill Ridge Poma late in the afternoon.

Looking back to Loch Morlich, good cover on the ridge.

View over the Zig Zags to the Funicular and Lady. Zig Zags not that much depth, but good surface.

View down the Fiacaill side slope.

Cas Gunbarrel.

Over into the M1 Queuing area from Zig Zag link, some stones around M1 Base - don't fly into here!

Top of the M1 Poma at dusk.

Skiers readying for the last run at the top of the Traverse.

M1 SideTrack only way into White Lady, it's rather thin and bit scrapped with the odd rock poking through - but worth it.

White Lady in good shape and gradually widening out, people were hugging the fence, leaving lots of soft snow in the burn line.

A perfect blue sky above the mountain all day on Monday, surface conditions are mostly excellent, but not a huge depth of snow yet in some areas due to heavy drifting on West winds, but the last couple of days snow falls overnight has made the mountain look less wind blasted.

Good cover on the Fiacaill, but the top half of the Carpark Run is pretty thin and there's not a huge depth on the Zig Zags though they are in decent nick, so encouraging to staff working on the snow guns at the end of the day, one came into action at dusk - hopefully more now are!

Lady is great, but the M1 SideTrack which is the sole viable entrance is a bit scrapped and thin with a few rocks poking through . M1 itself is not open. Coire Cas has great cover and the upper Cas is particularly wide.

M2 / Daylodge route was being prepared during Monday and will hopefully be open soon, M2 gives access to extensive snowfields on the Aonach Ridge back to the Ciste Carpark if shuttle bus is running.

Fairly strong S to SE winds forecast for Tuesday, so check in the morning. Please note that most of the Daylodge is out of action, the Cas Bar has been gutted and there is no catering available except for at the Ptarmigan Restaurant.
