Deep cut by the Piste Basher to level the upper up tracks!

Rock Garden to left, Main Basin to right of the tows.

Hitting a wind lip in the Rock Garden area.

Main Basin and Happy Valley largely fused into one, seen from the Rock Garden side of top tows.

Getting some turns in high above Rannoch Moor

Looking down on the Plateau Poma from Ski Tow Gully.

Plateau Runs in great shape, amazing cover and loads for all ability levels.

Sun on the Flypaper, but shadows starting to encroach.

Report
A bluebird Saturday morning, but cloud increased in the afternoon (there's been a light covering of fresh snow since).

Meall a' Bhuiridh is looking stunning and all the on mountain runs from the top of the Access Chair up have superb coverage so there is extensive options for all.

On the upper mountain the Rock Garden, Main Basin and Happy Valley are largely one white expanse. Similar mid-mountain where the named trails are almost meaningless in places with the extensive cover.

Some softening late last week and a return to cooler temperatures, plus the long settled spell mean the snow has gradually getting more packed, but is grooming up nicely. Bumps have been starting to build on the Spring Run.

All Plateau level runs also in good shape and there is excellent cover around the Plateau Rope Tow area for novices. Photos by Oldagedpredator and What Snow. More in the Public Reports.
