Old Mugs Alley is still in good shape off the Coire Pollach Tow for green terrain.

Looking down the Main Basin, wide cover and still flat through the Haggis Trap.

Thrombosis gully was a fun wee run in the soft snow on Tuesday.

Brightening up at the top off the Cliffhanger looking to the bottom of Rannoch Glades.

Looking up the Main Basin, snow was quicker on the upper mountain, bit slower mid mountain today.

View up the Spring Run from the merge into Mugs Alley.

Mid-station at the bottom of the Main Basin T-bar.

Looking up the Plateau Poma, uptrack still flat and easy to ride. Roma run is broken at the top, if lapping unload at gap 2/3rds of way up.

Report
A dusting of fresh snow at the top on Tuesday, but a slight loss of snow overnight on the Plateau area. Cooler weather with hill snow expected Wednesday then through to and including the weekend see's a cool unsettled pattern with a mix of bright or Sunny Spells and clusters of convective snow showers moving around within in a shallow polar trough.

Mdi and Upper Mountain most runs retain a good cover, there is still plenty of terrain on offer for all ability levels, though with cover reduced on the Plateau confident intermediates up will get much more out of the mountain. The Main Basin, Spring Run, Happy Valley and Flypaper all excellent up top. Various options off Rannoch Glades.

If you are looking for easier terrain, then Old Mugs Alley off the new Coire Pollach Tow remains the pick and is still in good condition. To access the Cliffhanger Chair from Old Mugs use the central fork via the Plateau Cafe.

The Plateau Poma run is broken at the top, if temperatures drop sufficiently quickly tonight it might be possible to fix this, but it is possible to ski to the top of the Access Chair via either the Low Road or Old Mugs Alley and the Access Return. The Plateau Poma run can be used by unloading 2/3rds of the way up the Poma for those looking to lap this run.
