Ski School also using machine made snow on the Cafe fork of Old Mugs Alley.

Snow beginning to accumulate on the Coire Pollach uptrack but not enough depth yet.

Ski School starting people off on the snow covered dry slope out of the wind!

View up Old Mugs Alley which has a base along the fence line / gully side.

Snowing quite hard to the base at times, but fluctuating snow level has prevented much accumulation on the Plateau.

Sat - Spring Run, Flypaper and East Ridge (R to L) to show the consolidated base.

Sat - Ski Tow Gully, Main Basin and Happy Valley (L to R). Now a base in most of the key areas to build from.

Plateau Cafe sledge park cover was thin but fast, also using the snow factory snow above the Cafe for sledging.

Report
A few photos from around the Plateau on Sunday when heavy snow showers were falling down to the base, plus a couple of pix of the upper mountain taken on Saturday which show the base that has slowly been taking shape.

Fluctuating temperatures overnight into Monday again meant no net gain on the Plateau, while snow was beginning to accumulate further on the higher slopes. Machines were working on Ski Tow Gully and the uptrack should be serviceable if enough snow sticks overnight to allow things to be linked together.

However though the wind is forecast to moderate quickly on Tuesday morning, there was not quite enough snow to resume lift served riding at dusk on Monday. Just what the wind / snow showers deliver overnight will need to be assessed on Tuesday morning.
