Report
An overcast and snowy start to Easter Sunday with a couple of inches of fresh snow falling overnight into the morning. Hill fog gave another clagged in start, but like on Saturday it cleared up for the afternoon with long enough sunny spells for a few red faces on the mountain.

Fantastic riding across the mountain for all ability levels, generally excellent surface conditions, but some softening of the fresh snow on the lower slopes, lead to some sticky snow where less used off-piste.

Ride anywhere cover on the mid and upper mountain and riding in places that just shouldn't be skiable on the lower mountain!

Full length of Ciste side runs still being done by skiing out the Aonach Bowl and Ciste Gully to the Ciste Carpark, offering up 2000ft of vertical. Laogh Mor Return complete to the Ciste also, with amazing off-piste steeps further out in Laogh Mor.

A very stormy couple of days is forecast, check the latest lift situation before travelling. Early indications are more settled conditions returning mid-week.
