Looking over the Summit Park to CMD.

Pisted fresh on a firm base on Warren's.

View across the Quad Chair to Loch Eil beyond from the Goose T-bar.

Goose Gully with a wide and deep cover, viewed from the T-bar.

Windblown fresh on a firm base on the lower Goose, looking up the Gully.

Natural pipe in the burn course of Goose Gully.

More mist and something park like near the foot of the Summit Runs.

Windblown fresh snow on the Upper Goose.

Deep cover on the Summit Uptrack, a stark contrast to the scoured Summit area of early season!

Hill fog and blowing snow give poor vis on the Summit Tow.

Going up the Goose T-bar, almost a full fence depth even low down on the tow track.

Misty view beyond the Quad Chair.

Report
A covering of fresh windblown snow on a firm to hard packed base after the refreeze. Some further snow showers through the day gave alternating spells of bright sunny weather and snow with very poor visibility esp higher up.

Snow loss in the very mild spring like weather mid-week was most noticeable on lower runs where the base was narrow and thin in places, but the upper mountain and Back Corries retain an extensive base.

Accumulations of snow through the Easter Cold period underwent their first real thaw mid-week, this lead to very sticky wet snow which in turn refroze to give a hard and in places slick base, leading to icy patches.

Back Corries and the Braveheart Chair will be assessed daily and will operate subject to surface conditions, snow stability and overhead conditions, but there is plenty good riding on the front and summit area.
