:: Weather Conditions
At last a day of light winds and sun and all uplift open at Glencoe apart from the top button on the Main Basin which is still deeply buried under the snow. It felt balmy and warm in the spring sunshine and although there were a few showers around on the adjacent hills they stayed clear of Meall a' Bhuiridh. By the end of the day as the sun went down the snow was again firming up as temperatures fell. A superb days skiing!
:: Snow Conditions & Info
There is just a fantastic and deep cover over the whole mountain. There were some fresh turns to be found out wide on the plateau and the Etive Glades with some lovely pockets of soft windblown snow. Elsewhere the snow pack was firm early on with some harder wind scoured areas at the top of the Etive and Rannoch Glades. As the day progressed the snow softened and became more spring like and granular.
