Looking up the Canyon, still fairly mellow but the bumps are building a bit.

Les checks out the Canyon from the still huge pile of snow left from digging out Ski Tow Gully earlier in the Season.

Looking over the Flypaper Bowl to the East Ridge - great lines, but beware of the large crevasses, check it out carefully first run!

The Haggis Trap was here somewhere!

Main Basin T-bar doing it's thing, there is still a mind boggling amount of snow in the Main Basin.

View down Ski Tow Gully - still a huge depth here as the gully is still flat to the brim.

These are just a small selection of the photos in the Public Reports from Eagles (Ken) and WindyMiller (Graeme) from Tuesday. Check the link and the previous few days Pix from the Slopes for a full idea of the extent of cover still on offer.

The bulk of the mid and upper mountain runs are formed from expansive natural snowfields or deep gullies and these are all still loaded with deep snow cover, giving excellent spring snow riding for more confident intermediates upwards.

There is still a full spectrum of run grades available, though the options are far more extensive for intermediates up, Mugs Ally combined with the Bunny Run still provides an option for early intermediates who are comfortable with steeper greens or easy blue terrain off the Cliffhanger Chair.

For more experienced riders the entire mountain is one big fun spring playground, get out and explore all the possible different lines!

Glencoe is open daily through to and including Monday 5th May - the clock is ticking on the 2014 season, so get out and play at least one more time.
