Excellent Cover

:: Weather Conditions
Not much wind. Clear when I arrived about 11.15am then mist came and hung over the summit. Snowed about 1 inch early afternoon then cleared to give a stunning sunset. Probably freezing about mid Cas level
:: Snow Conditions & Info
In the morning the pisted runs were quite hard but softened during the day helped by the fresh snow.
Good to be able to ski the Aonach , the Ciste gully and the east Ciste gullies.
Lady was best over to the east wall side of the piste. M1 was pretty hard all day . Cas and Gunbarrel which is now well filled were lovely.
No queues, so all in all a great day .
