Looking over to the Main Basin T-bar from the top of the Wall.

Big flakes as another snow shower moves in at the bottom of the Low Road.

The Haggis Trap, quite mellow, but narrow as it's banked out.

Looking across the Main Basin from the Rock Garden which had fantastic snow.

Looking down the loaded uptracks of the Top Tows, great riding both sides.

T-bar on the downline with only inches clearance off the snow bank on the Main Basin T-bar.

Boarder on the Plateau Run which along with the Low Road and Access Return are in great shape for greens.

Boarders taking in the view of Meall a' Bhuiridh from the Plateau Rope Tow beginner area.

Following the Red Downhill Track to some sweet burn gully lines - but a walk out the lower track required.

The now Motorway standard Old Mugs Alley.

The Bunny Run, High Road and Mugs Alley have merged into one huge snowfield.

A cornice marks the last remaining sign of Thrombosis gully!

Superb cover on the Plateau Runs and some sweet gentle off-piste here too.

Top of the Cliffhanger Chair from the upper leg of Mugs Alley.

The mountain river just below the waterfall underneath the Access Chair.

Take note of this sign and 'mind your heid'.... You have been warned!

Report
A day of bright Sunny Spells and convective snow showers which with a spell of light but steady snow last night has given a further top up of snow to an already loaded Meall a' Bhuiridh.

With the ferocity of the storm at the end of last week into the weekend, there is a huge depth of snow on most of the runs, quite incredible depths in the likes of the Canyon, Thrombosis gully and Ski Tow Gully. There had been some scoured areas, notably on the Spring Run and further round on Etive Glades, but these are improving steadily with the snow showers, so surface conditions are now for the most part excellent.

With extensive cover and good riding back to the top of the Access Chair, there is lots of options for all ability levels just now and the groomers are coming up with perfect machine packed powder 'hero snow'. Pick of the day was the Rock Garden area skiers right of the Top Tows, superb skier packed snow with a lovely layer of fresh.

As we approach Easter Weekend there should be some further snow showers over the next couple of days, with Sunny spells in-between. Before things settle down further to fine and dry, with light winds. With great mid-winter snow, Spring is very definitely King this year at Glencoe.

Get your toys in the car and get up here and play.
