Looking down Cluny to the Meall Odhar Poma which opened shortly before 3pm.

The view at the top of Meall Odhar Poma, can just make out the Fionn Pomas.

Carpark filling up rapidly once road from the South opened late morning.

View down Baddoch Chair to Sunnyside (Sat).

Cairnwell Race Track and T-bar on Saturday.

Cairnwell Triple disappears into the cloud at the bottom of the Tiger, which was rather firm to hard Sunday.

The weather forecast didn't really go to plan anywhere today, with overnight snow accompanied by stronger and forecast winds causing substantial drifting on the Southern approach to the snowsports area. The snow blower had to recut sections meaning it was late morning before the A93 opened from the South.

All runs have good cover, but the most snow by far is on Western aspects of Meall Odhar and Glas Maol, and to an extent Sunnyside, as the bulk of the snow fell in Severe Easterly Gales. This means don't generally expect light fluffy powder, the snow is heavily wind affected, but grooming up nicely on most runs and additional snow is set to accumulate in generally lighter winds over the coming days.

All Cairnwell Runs have good cover between the fences, but less general snow cover than West aspects. The Tiger has good cover but is firm to hardpacked so only for advanced riders with good edges. Cover on Butchart's Access and Carn Aosda fences improved significant with them being on a Southerly aspect so the East wind has being blowing snow across them.

Clusters of heavy snow showers coming in from the East Coast this evening. Some hills in the general area could see 6 inches plus tonight, but others only a light covering, such is the nature of these showery streams. Check reports and road info in the morning.
