Above the Traverse on Coronation Wall looking down into Coire Cas.

Looking up the Top Basin from base of the Ciste Tow. All top runs in excellent condition.

Ptarmigan Bowl has total cover, allowing for lots of space despite a sizeable park which has ride on novice boxes to big kickers for advanced park riders.

Fresh snow has gradually been building up at higher levels, more forecast, but unlike recent showers could be a lot more drifting in stronger winds.

Report
The Top Basin is in excellent shape with a full width cover of fresh snow on a good base. Excellent conditions when weather behaving for novices and early intermediates.

Heading down from the top, cover is excellent as you head onto the mid-mountain runs, with snow starting to build up on Coronation Wall above the Traverse. Best route to mid-station is the Traverse, Coire Cas and Gunbarrel, as the snow has been retreating slowly up the hill despite new accumulations up top.

M1 SideTrack and upper White Lady good for more experienced skiers and boarders, but narrowing towards mid-station / M1 Poma and the only run above blue grade officially open / lift served. More photos from Ski Cadets in the Public Reports.

If you have been out on the slopes please post a report. Thanks.
