Looking back to Summit Gully & Spikes. Note the cornice.

Freshies on the East Goose early Friday morning.

The Nevis Range viewed from near the Commando Monument, Aonach Mor, CMD and Ben Nevis.

Tracked up freshies on the flank of Climbers Col seen from under the Braveheart Chair.

Heading up the Braveheart Chair, means Spikes and Summit Gully were being lapped off the lifts.

Dropping into Coire Dubh via the Back Track, looking round the Lemming Ridge to Chancer.

Report
Nevis Range basked under largely blue skies on Good Friday with fantastic riding to be had all over the mountain.

On the front side the best sport is on the top half of the mountain where there is an extensive base under deep wind packed fresh snow. Riding to the Top of the Gondola via the Rabbit Run is possible, but Yokies or the Allt Sneachda to the Quad road are the best lower runs.

The Linnhe is complete and open for novices so there is something on offer for all ability levels.

East face of the Goose is as it has been for much of the season in epic shape. Many used it as a warm up for hitting the Back Corries, in Coire Dubh the Braveheart was open and was well worth lapping.

Braveheart running meant that Spikes and Summit Gully were lift served and both are offering great off-piste riding (outwith the patrol area, check avalanche risk).

These are a selection of photos from Good Friday, lots more in the Public Reports.
