Going up the Plateau Poma - uptrack well filled and flat, easy going as it gets.

Looking down from high on the Main Basin. Both top tows can run, big difference to upper mountain capacity.

Top leg of Mugs Alley. All mid-mountain runs have great cover. Thormbosis and Canyon wide for more advanced riders.

All the options on Mugs Alley are good back to the middle lifts and Plateau Cafe. View from Cliffhanger Chair.

The Low Road has a wide cover of groomed firm packed snow.

Main Basin is being extensively groomed and even the Haggis Trap is a motorway with no sign of the trap.

The threatened cloud form a rising inversion largely failed to show up, so it was mostly bluebird on Thursday.

It's still possible for advanced skiers and boarders to ride from the Summit to the edge of Rannoch Moor via the low level Red and Black Access Runs to the top of the Carpark that drop from the bottom of the main snowsports area at 2200ft back down to the base of the Access Chairlift at 1200ft.

On the mountain the majority of runs have good cover of firm to hard packed snow. All mid-mountain and Plateau Runs have good cover, but top of Etive Glades is wind scoured - so can be accessed from lower down. Spring Run and Flypaper have been closed if the snow has stayed hard at the top, but the Main Basin is being extensively groomed.

All uplift is scheduled to run at the weekend and the Rannoch Button has been operating when demand. Ski Hire will be open Fridays and Saturday evenings from 4.30 to 6.30pm for those staying on site who require equipment for the following day.
