Looking up the Canyon from the Plateau Cafe - the outside tables are missing!

Fresh tracks on the Wall this afternoon when the T-bar was dug out.

Huge drift past the roof mounted webcam looking up Old Mugs Alley and the Coire Pollach Tow.

There's no shortage of snow for sledging at the Plateau Cafe.

Ski Tow Gully and the Rescue Station beginning to disappear.

Digging in, then out of the Rescue Shed!

Basically what you need to know is that somewhere between 50 and 60cm of new snow has fallen on Meall a' Bhuiridh in the past 60hours and the forecast for Friday is negligible wind and sunny skies!

The mountain is loaded, wide and deep cover on every run with lots of fun rarely skiable lines in play in between the named snowfields.

The full Summit to Moor 2400ft of vertical is doable too, good consolidated base on the top 3/4 of the Red and Black Access Runs, but thin baseless new snow below so a bit combat but definitely worth it.

Please respect avalanche closures and beware that despite its relatively low elevation further out on the dark side of the Access Chair could be sketchy too. Speak to patrol on site for the latest.

Great sport for all abilities and sledging is free at the Plateau Cafe for those wanting to just go and play in the snow in the sun!
