Tom Dearg, complete but narrow in places with granular spring snow.

Tiger is wide at the top, still various possible lines giving good sport for experts on good granular spring snow.

Sunnyside hanging in there though narrow, reasonable spring snow and the uptrack remains in good nick.

Looking out over Sunnyside and Meall Odhar to Glas Maol.

Sign of the times.....

Carn Aosda had the least snow to start with, but still a patchy base and it wouldn't take much to plug the gaps on the Poma.

Cairnwell Tow Track mostly hanging in there as is the Race Track, though narrow.

These photos are from dub_01's public report (the photos were corrupted so have been reloaded here).

High winds limited uplift to the Sunnyside and Tom Dearg Pomas initially and these runs are complete but generally fairly narrow, but had decent surface conditions with loose granular spring snow.

The wind eased enough for the Cairnwell Chair to come on and this opened up the Tiger and Thunderbowl. Best sport is on the Tiger, wide at the top and though narrower lower down there's still several possible lines with good granular spring snow. Most runs still have something of a base, the Sunnyside uptracks are in good shape and further out there are more extensive snow fields on Glas Maol. Hopefully Monday will be dry and thus save the base for the expected refreeze on Tuesday with only modest further thawing.

Dub_01's report has further details.
