Checking out what the Back looks like.

Surfing through the drifts!

Hmm not really the tools for a powder day!

Laying tracks in the powder... on the Linnhe beginner tow!

Drifts on the Linnhe trainer Tow. Alpha beyond.

More drifts.

Big drifts of windblown powder on the Alpha.

Report
Windy with a harsh windchill, but further snow showers and continued drifting continued to load the open runs with windblown fresh powder.

The Quad Chair eventually succumbed to the wind and icing and went off at lunchtime - the ride taking up to 20mins with the wind slows it wasn't really the place to be on Sat.

The Alpha was loading up with fresh and the uptrack had to be bashed out several times during the day. Higher up Goose Gully was loaded and in great nick with powder across the full width from T-bar to far side of gully, apart from the very top which was suffering some scouring.

Exposed to the West wind Warrens was scoured higher up and closed due to exposed rocks on the narrow icy top section, but there were some massive drifts further down. Hopefuly Warrens will have filled more evenly as the wind changed.

Thanks to SteveMck for the photos from Saturday.
