It was a misty and claggy day on Meall a'Bhuiridh especially on the middle and upper mountain where visibility closed in more in the afternoon during some heavy snow showers. There was no wind to speak of in the morning and it was still quite benign even in the snow showers later on.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
There is just simply a phenomenal and crazy amount of snow on Meall a' Bhuiridh. It is absolutely loaded! The Glencoe team spent the morning digging out the Main basin T-bar and uptrack at the Rescue shed. They did a great job to get it cleared by the afternoon. This gave some fantastic skiing on the deep soft snow all the way down the Main basin over the now flat and deeply filled Haggis trap. The Thrombosis, Canyon and the Wall are just one big continuous playground of deep soft snow. You can hardly see the fences on the Plateau runs and the Low Road has all but virtually disappeared.
