15ft gap jump on the Plateau (don't fall in the gap )

Heading out of Thrombosis, nice soft snow lurking in lines by and under the Cliffhanger.

Sweet corduroy on a firm grippy base on the Plateau. Wide cover skiers right of the poma.

Scottish Ski Club Hut and top station of the Cliffhanger Chairlift.

Main Basin T-bar doing it's thing on Thursday. Top Button can run for the holidays if demand.

Promising start to Thursday on the way up the Access Chair.

Heading over to the Plateau Poma for the first run of the day.

Looking past the Plateau Poma to the Main Basin beyond.

Spring Run and Flypaper from the Plateau Poma.

Pisting Mugs Alley.

That's cheating...

Good wide cover on the lower Mugs Alley, couple of scrapped bits near the bottom, some slick patches.

Going up the Cliffhanger, some good lines below the Chair.

Looking into the Canyon from the Cliffhanger.

Report
A beautiful day with very little wind and unbroken sunshine through the morning, though cloud increased in the afternoon to give a light flurry at closing time.

All runs are fully complete to the top of the Access Chair with a good cover on virtually all of the runs, just a couple of thin and scrapped bits at the foot of the Plateau and Mugs Alley, but there is plenty width on these to avoid them. Wide cover skiers right of the Plateau Poma where there is a gap jump and table top.

Crunchy to hard off the pisted lines low down, generally firm packed mid-mountain with a covering of loose snow, pockets of loose soft snow can be found around Thrombosis, under the Cliffy and parts of the Wall. Dry squeeky snow on the upper mountain giving beautiful turns on the groomers on the Main Basin.

Spring run is in great shape and the Flypaper has been open most days this week. Etive Glades has caught the most depth, possibly the best cover here for years thanks to the SE gales of mid January.

Never more than a handful of people waiting for the Main Basin T-bar on Thursday, Wall T-bar scheduled for Friday and Top Button can run at the weekend.
