Looking down Mugs Ally, can ride anywhere between the options and the crust softened today.

Skiers on the upper leg of Mugs Ally as the snow set in and wind picked up in the afternoon.

Top of the Wall T-bar, huge depth of snow around the base of the Top Tows.

Ski Patroller turns out of the Haggis Trap - photo taken from where the base of it should be!

Skier on the Wall, lots of lines getting skied as yesterdays crust layer softened up.

Ride anywhere cover under the Cliffhanger Chair - exceptional cover on the mid mountain.

Deep cover at the top of the Access Chair, there is a fence on top of a bank there!

Big drifts around the SSC Hut. All webcams now online this afternoon.

A fine start for the early birds on Sunday at Glencoe, Meall 'a Bhuiridh was clear to the summit at dawn. However the cloud base soon came down and light snow started falling, though the wind didn't really start to ratchet up till after lunchtime. The forecast timing was fairly on the money, the mountain was open to the top till after 1pm, but eventually an slightly early end to play was called around 2.30pm as the wind continued to increase.

Shame about the visbility because the under ski conditions were great, still lovely fresh dry snow on the upper mountain. Main Basin and Happy Valley were riding beautifully - but there was a distinct lack of visibility by lunchtime. Indeed if anything surface conditions were better than Saturday as the crust on the lower part of the mountain had loosened up allowing more lines to be enjoyed, as far as the visibility allowed.

Coming down the Access Chair snow was falling to around half way down, blizzard conditions setting in the mountain. There should be further snow for a time this evening, but the freezing level is forecast to rise to around or slightly above the summits for a time later tonight.

Storm Force winds are forecast to continue throughout Monday and probably into Tuesday, before starting to moderate mid-week. Check the latest with Glencoe in the morning.

All webcams on the mountain are now back online. Sorry no SSC weather data as the weather station has suffered further damage and needs replaced.
