Is it red nose day? Oops!! Another fantastic day on the mountain and extensive work with the machines to doze out some of the massive drifted accumulations is opening up some very sweet machine packed powder corduroy in places that you may well have never seen a Piste Basher before!
The huge drifts below the top of the Home Road have been pisted out down Sheiling Gully, merging back into the Home Road. This allows the full length of the White Lady (and a bit more) to be hit rather than cutting back to the M1 Poma.
Over in the Ciste a machine was working to widen out the runout in the lower Ciste Gully and there is now 3 pisted routes to the Ciste Carpark. For more advanced riders the full length of the Ciste Gully is the obvious one, but perhaps the run of the day was the full length of the Aonach Bowl, and the M2 -> Aonach Bowl -> Ciste Gully is an alternative route top to bottom on the Ciste Side.
Beyond Coire na Ciste the Laogh Mor Return is also pisted to the Carpark. Just below the fence line there is a wide slope with a gentle runout that looks to have been pisted that was very popular with people sledging!
