New snow this week has greatly freshened up the already open runs, plus the snow has re-opened the M1 sidetrack, M1 RaceTrack, and the M2. These were all good but there are a few rocks to avoid where the new snow is baseless.

The White Lady is offering good riding for advanced skiers/boarders though still fairly narrow on the mid-section before the cut-off onto the Skirt, back to either the M1 or Funicular.

The Ciste gully was closed because of windslab on the traverse out, but this is being assessed. The Aonach Bowl is unpisted but loaded with fresh if somewhat baseless powder.

Top to Daylodge riding is again on offer via the Carpark Runs which are pisted, it's also possible to get an unpisted route down the Fiacaill Ridge. Fiacaill Traverse and Fiacaill runs offer an excellent longer blue off the Cas Tow. Fiacaill Ridge Poma can run if demand.

Thanks to H11lly for the photos.
