Heading for the Daylodge by the Home Road, thin and scratchy - watch the cross-drains. Carpark Run might be better after further top ups tonight.

Piste Basher bashing out the drifts on the Traverse.

Laying October tracks on the Upper Cas.

Enough snow to ski the off-piste side of the Cas upline - with care.

Woohoo another few inches of fresh, snowing steadily since this pic was taken!

Snow hole built into drifts by the Traverse. On slope accommodation to let!

Snow fell pretty much continuously on Thursday afternoon (and has continued into the evening).

Top Basin has the most snow along with the Marquis Well area, should be good for early season touring when visibility lifts and you can see the freshies to really enjoy them.

With regard to lift served sport the Top Basin uplift is not available so it will depend on the condition of the Zig Zags, if its possible to get within comfortable walking distance of the mid-station the word is the funicular will run in an open system. Will be assessed Friday am - it might just be possible to ski the top 2 Zig Zags and hack a way down the bottom of the Gunbarrel Tow track with the fresh snow. Fingers crossed, but if you want an October Slide - its the Lecht on Friday.

Thanks To H11lly for the photos.
