:: Snow Conditions & Info
Some people came to ski, some people came to queue and some came to participate in a mass start key stone cops competition.

Stayed Meall Odhar and Corie Fionn with a lap or two of Glas Maol once the queue subsided. When the third valley opened the second was actually the place to be. Q's I had four or five people in front of me at times ? terrible. Worth hanging round for as morning was a bit of a wait at either of the pomas upto Meall Odhar.

In the vast majority very very good, wind refreshed powder along some fence lines. Blown back to hard pack infrequently, more on higher W facing slopes. Narrow and grassy dropping into Corie Fionn and scraping back to base in patches. Blues and greens all seemed in excellent condition. Bit heavy going in bad light when I dropped into Corie Fionn from Caenlochan Poma. If pisted would have been good but the mass migration had chopped it somewhat. Glas Moal excellent.
