Approx 1430 in afternoon, top of the Meal Ohdar poma with west side of Glenshee just visible through variable cloud - much worse than this 30 secs earlier!

Photo shows the distinct snowline, looking back down Glenshee towards Braemar, all of Glenshee has full cover.

View back to the East side of Glenshee from the top of Butcharts Coire. Note patchy cloud over Meal Ohdar.

Pisted snow and fresh soft snow on a firm base. All areas gave great grip though good edges needed on some polished patches.

View back to the wild-country from top of Butcharts. Accumulated wind blown and rime snow on the fence with 'Andean' character.

Approx 1030hrs, Alpine conditions over Cairnwell [West-side] of Glenshee centre.

:: Weather Conditions
Early blue skies across ski area deteriorated as day progressed to mid afternoon. All lower runs remained clear with sun however increasing broken cloud patches reduced visibility on Glas Maol and Meal Ohdar after midday.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
general superb conditions though some variability between fresh snow, worn Neve and perfect snow on some runs, particularly GS race track. Gunbarrel on Coire Fionn had banks of pow close to Glas Maol tow which threw a curve-ball, also evident on the West Rib of Glas Maol. Butcharts, Access and Bunny-run all gave perfect skiing with Slalom Race track almost perfect. Where the skiing was good, conditions are superb all other areas are a 9/10. See Photos
