Typical end of day weather!

The track at the bottom of the Low Road and Rankin's Return is filling in and you can ski back to the Poma now.

Middle of Rankins Return.

Start of the fenceline on Rankins Return near the top of the Rannoch Chairlift.

Top leg of Mugs Alley is improving, but still thin in spots as lacking a base here.

Looking up the Old Mugs Alley fork to the Cafe from outside the door of the Plateau Cafe.

The sledge park is in fantastic shape, full length/width. Ski School teaching area also in good shape now for first timers.

Looking up the Coire Pollach Tow and Old Mugs Alley, both continuing to fill in.

Top of the Plateau Poma. Poma Run is still early season style conditions, but gradually filling out.

Around 4 to 6" of fresh snow has fallen today at Plateau Level, a bit progressively more further up the mountain. Thus the Plateau Runs are all continuing to fill in and improve.

Visibility was poor on Tuesday afternoon as the expected snow showers merged into more organised area of fairly persistent snow. So no photos from above mid mountain!

On the Plateau all the Plateau runs could be skied back to the Poma by Tuesday afternoon, Rankins Return has caught a lot of new snow as has Old Mugs Alley and the Coire Pollach Tow track is filling in now too. There is uncerainty of when a stronger band of potentially Severe Gale Force winds will reach, timing will affect the direction and also the temperature at the time of strongest winds.

Thus the extent to which this afternoons fairly uniform new snow will drift and be redistrbuted overnight is uncertain. Potentially the Poma uptrack and Coire Pollach Tow / Old Mugs Alley could gain quite a lot of windblown snow with stormy Easterly winds.

Some forecast models have the strongest winds post dawn as Easterly, others as ESE or SE later into Thursday. If the winds peak before opening and then veer SE, then that is a direction that usually doesn't impact the uplift with full force at Glencoe. But advisable to check updates AM on Thursday.

Another band of more organised precipitation and mountain snow is expected to reach later this evening and should give another 2 to 3 inches of new snowfall.
