White lady was not as scoured as the last couple of days but was getting a bit heavy on the bottom 1/3

The hidden gem was Ryvoan, piste was firm and controlable, well pisted.

Looking up Ryvoan

The ptarmigan half pipe. Snow remained below freezing up here, nice and soft

Ptarmigan traverse, nice powder here

Entrance to Ryvoan, one machine width, quite narrow but opens to a wide run.

Lookingup the ptarmigan traverse

Aonach bowl, amazing, slightly heavy at the bottom but most was soft fresh snow.

Looking up the entrance to Ryvoan, this narrow entrance will keep some of the lesser ability skier away which may not be a bad thing as it left the main run for good skiers travelling at some speed.

Skiers right of the Ptarmigan Tbar. You could find some untracked powder over here, but don't tell anyone.

:: Snow Cover
Most Terrain has Good Cover.
:: Surface Conditions (out of 5)
:: Weather Conditions
Started off very windy but by 10: 00 this subsided to give a misty day with long sunny intervals. Temperature was mild most of the day with only the very top of the ptarmigan area staying cold.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
With the mild temps the snow very quickly got heavy. There were still areas that remained in good condition, top 2/3 of lady, ptarmigan area and ryvoan but other areas became quite wet towards the end of the day. Ryvoan was the jewel and the Aonach a surprise, nice soft snow very controlable.
