Looking up Mugs Alley.

East Ridge had superb spring snow, getting the full Sun it's been baked to perfection!

Looking back into the Flypaper Bowl, and why the Flypaper itself remains shut as the old crown wall continues to calve huge chunks.

Main Basin is simply sublime at present. Come and lay some tracks.

Early birds get the corduroy worm in the Main Basin.

Looking down the East Ridge, fantastic - but watch your traverse line, unless your willing to hike back up.

Old Mugs Alley still in superb shape with wide and deep cover.

Going up the Coire Pollach Tow, looking to Spring Run. Mid mountain, Thrombosis, Bunny / High Road and the Cliffy crag all good cover.

Another bluebird day above the inversion layer on Friday and despite the warm temperatures on the mountain there's been little change in cover over recent days, with the dry air and diurnal thaw/freeze cycles preserving the snow pack.

Snow pack has now aged into great granular spring snow, may start firm but when it loosens up in the Sun it's perfect.
