Report
Most terrain is now available within the ski patrol area as snow stability slowly improves, but there remains a significant avalanche risk beyond the officially open terrain.

There was a shuttle bus running from the Ciste on Wednesday and the West Wall Poma was open. On Thursday only the Fiacaill Ridge Poma is expected to be available for uplift from the Coire Cas car park. Thus it's only advisable for more confident intermediates upwards on Thursday, but it's hoped the Car Park Tow and Funicular will be back in action for Friday and the Daylodge Poma for the weekend.

There is full ride anywhere cover across the mountain, with some ridiculous lines currently being done. Surface conditions are a mix of machine packed and skier tracked/packed powder on a hard base with some softening on aspects in the afternoon sun. There are some hard patches mainly around the foot of the lifts, but the M2 was scoured of loose snow and is hard packed with icy patches.

East Lady, White Lady, Cas Boulderfield areas all offering as good as it gets riding.
