Rankins Return has a huge width of windpacked fresh snow providing the longest green run on the Plateau.

Sledge Park at the Plateau Cafe is full length and width. Sledging is complimentary with any uplift ticket.

Old Mugs Alley in good shape now for returning to the Plateau Cafe. Lower part of Old Mugs Alley had some big wind lips to play on.

Looking up the Spring Run.

Main Basin with windblown fresh on a decent base.

Mugs Alley is complete, old Mugs Alley is easier way back to Cliffy and Cafe.

Plateau Poma is back in action!

Can now ski off the top of the Access Chair and onto the Plateau Poma and Rannoch Chairlifts.

With over close to a foot of snowfall over 24 hours in high winds, there has been significant gains across the mountain to well below the top of the Access Chair. The Wall T-bar made its season debut today mid mountain.

Big drifted accumulations of wind packed snow across the Plateau Runs, mean the full on mountain vertical of 1400ft is available again and crucially given the situation elsewhere, Glencoe can now offer terrain for all ability levels, plugging what was a big gap between first timer and expert terrain across the Scottish snowsports areas.

With all Plateau area runs now skiable, there is good capacity for early intermediates seeking longer green to easier blue standard terrain. Happy Valley is open again on the upper mountain and is the next stage up from the full length of Mugs Alley from the Cliffhanger.

With lighter winds expected on Wednesday the Cliffhanger Chair should be back open. Depending how ongoing slope preparation and storm recovery work goes, either of / or possibly both the Rannoch Chair and Coire Pollach Tow should be available serving early intermediate terrain.

Access Chair is now ski off to the Plateau Poma and/or Rannoch Chairlift. The ambitious can get down to about 1500ft via Weasel Gully, then a short walk down the road if you really have to get a few extra turns in instead of downloading on the Access Chair! :)
