A larger selection of photos from opening weekend Saturday at the Lecht is available on Highland-Instinct.

Most main runs complete for the first full day of the 2008 season at the Lecht, but early season conditions exist due to lack of established base, thus some runs have thin and narrow areas, such as the Grouse and foot of Eagle 1.

However the runs that were upwind have loaded with snow and the Eagle 2 run and all Buzzard Runs are in fantastic shape for opening weekend. With full width cover of machine groomed snow between the fences and unpisted fresh outwith.

Buzzard opened mid-afternoon, but should be on the go earlier on Sunday. Ample good beginner areas.
