Looking up Coire Cas from outside the Daylodge, Sun belies a strong wind!

Good cover on the Fiacaill Ridge, but icy after overnight rain.

Looking to the Lady and M1 from base of Ridge Poma.

Ciste Tow and WWP now up and running wind permitting.

Report
Overnight a period of rain to all levels followed by a refreeze left a generally hard packed snow cover which was pretty icy in places, particularly where exposed to the wind.

Some snow showers in the morning before it brightened up with some sunny spells for most of the day. The weather closed in again later with high winds and snow showers.

The Coire na Ciste T-bar and the West Wall Poma are now open when wind permits. At present the route to the WW Poma is via the M2 and OverYonder. The Daylodge Poma run has been getting skied but is narrow and thin and not yet sufficient snow to piste, so likely to be very variable surface conditions.
