Report
A blustery day with varying overhead between Sunny spells and cloudy intervals, but the Sunny Spells winning out to become more prolonged later.

The weekend snowfall has greatly freshened up the excellent cover across the bulk of the area, and it's staying very fresh with the cold temperatures. However the wind does mean some scouring on the ridge tops, so the tops of some runs and particularly ridge top runs like the Home Run on Meall Odhar are down to the hard and in places icy base.

However away from the ridge lines it's mostly fantastic surface conditions, with machine packed powder on the groomed main lines and extensive skier tracked / packed fresh beyond. Huge playground on Glas Maol but take heed of any advice posted up by Ski Patrol regards snow stability as it's continuing to move around as it's staying very fine and powdery, plus the continuing cold means any existing instabilities in the snowpack are not diminishing.

For the less adventurous rider, the runs on Sunnyside were fantastic and continuing to slowly catch more windblown powder through the day. For novices the Dink Dink and Rope Tow area is in good shape. Butchart's Access was getting great reports for amazing surface conditions when pisted over the weekend.

Thanks to Oldagepredator for Monday's Photos. If you've been lucky enough to be out, please post a public report or email pix2013@winterhighland.info .
