Old Mugs Alley had a base and has caught the most snow.

Good drifts building up during the day on Old Mugs Alley, some wind lips to play on visibility allowing!

Looking over the Plateau Poma from the top of the Access.

Clearer interlude going up the Plateau Poma.

Coire Pollach Track catching snow well today.

It looks inviting low down, but it was definitely a day to take the chair down. Scoured areas, a few big drifts and coherent route on any of the low level Access Runs.

Well something appears to be missing here!

Good cover in the sledge park, but wrap up very well as it will be cold, snowy and breezy on Wednesday!

Report
Snow showers are continuing to come into the West tonight and the NMM mesoscale model indicates convective shower activity intensifying somewhat late evening into the early hours of Wednesday.

The Plateau Poma and Coire Pollach Tows resumed the lift served season at Glencoe on Tuesday and it is hoped to get the Cliffhanger Chairlift up and running on Wednesday.

Good fresh snow on the triangle of Plateau Runs, but some narrow areas due to scouring intermixed with areas of deep drifted accumulations. Old Mugs Alley was the best run as there is a base here and it was catching the most new snow, as visibility allows there was some fun to be had hitting wind lips and wee cornices that formed during the day.

Where groomed things will start out as smooth machine packed powder corduroy, but the wind blown snow will tend to unsmooth things! Uncertainty about how quickly the weather will deteriorate with stronger winds pushing in on Wednesday afternoon, so an early start advised to get the best of the day (but as always if possible check for updates on route to minimise the potential for wasted travel).
