Still air at dusk meant beautiful crunchy spring snow turns on the Spring Run.

Fading glow of the sunset gives a magical summer twilight on the Spring Run.

Looking up the Spring Run.

Looking towards Ben Nevis from the summit path out to the Spring Run.

View down the Main Basin, couple of big bulges of snow so hopefully a decent mid-summer slide will be possible.

Effect of a week of warm and breezy weather accelerating the spring thaw, this rail was set up a week and is now high and dry!

Looking up the Main Basin from beside Island Rock.

Looking down the Main Basin to the Haggis Trap.

the bottom of the Haggis Trap, gave that a miss with the warm temperatures!

Moody skies overhead, but it stayed dry through the evening and brightened up at dusk.

An evening sortie up Meall a' Bhuiridh, dry but moody skies overhead and a fairly colourful if not spectacular sunset. With the daytime breeze easing away at dusk, the spring snow was decent on the Main Basin and the Spring Run had beautiful fast crunchy spring snow in the summer twilight.

Main Basin was just complete, but a short break will develop by or on Wednesday between T6 and T7 of the T-bar, but quite marked bulges of snow above and below this point - so hopeful for a mid summer slide.

So Main Basin and the Spring Run still mostly skiable for those wanting to tick off some summer turns, you'll need to unclip from the Spring Run to pick up the snow bank on the Rannoch Wall. The uptrack is now well broken, so hiked to just below Island Rock and skinned from there up the Main Basin. Haggis Trap is definitely done for the year, the remaining snow bridge was extremely precarious and at it's thinnest point the river bed drops away several meters more!
