Ski Tow Gully, t-bars almost touching the snow and more drifting / snowfall since then.

Huge drift extends across Ski Tow Gully from the Rescue Station.

The Wall has been loading up with windblown fresh all day.

A snowy Cliffhanger Chair, was ready to go this afternoon - but ore snow and wind overnight.

Looking down from the top of the Plateau Poma.

Base of the Plateau Poma run, good riding for all ability levels.

Loads of snow at the top of the Access Chairlift.

Meall a' Bhuiridh looking good as the Sun attempts to break through - from the Access Chairlift.

Looking over the mountain river to the Darkside - obvious shallow gully is the black line on the map, deep windblown snow.

Looking down on the base area from the low level Black Access Run.

Still fresh tracks to be had approaching the bottom of the Black Access Run.

More low level options further out on the Darkside - but there is a bit of a cornice and windslab on firmer snow!

Another blustery day at Glencoe with beefy snow showers packing in regularly giving periodic blizzard conditions and significant drifting.

As dusk approached periodic whiteouts at the base in the stronger squalls, the Access Road is difficult and drifted tonight - it has been gritted, but snow is continuing to drift tonight. It will be cleared in the morning, but snow is likely to continue to drift.

On Monday uplift opened up to the mid-mountain level with the Wall T-bar providing access to the Rescue Station level. From there down 1600ft of vertical descent was possible to the base of the Access Chair via the red and black low level Access Runs. Mix of windblown and wind packed snow on these, with the red fence line slightly skier packed lower down.

Up on the mountain deep accumulations of wind blown powder, with the odd scoured hard patch. Where pisted it's grooming up into perfect machine packed powder. Great options for all ability levels.

Tuesday will see more snow and increasing winds again for the afternoon, at present Wednesday looks like the day not to miss. Keep an eye on the forecasts and start making your plans. All areas will get some more fresh, but it's Glencoe and Nevis that are getting the bulk of it.
