Plateau was agricultural at the top and bottom. Rankins Return was best for getting to the top the Access Chair. Possible to reach the Cliffy using Old Mugs Alley with some heather hopping. Skis off to cross the river at the bottom of Mugs Alley. Best run was the Main Basin then across tour Happy Valley. Spring Run was also open

scorching! Blue skies, the odd cloud, no wind. The type of day that you dream about!

Snow improved since Wednesday ; lot of work down by the hill crew to cover up the narrows on Happy Valley, and make the Haggis trap a wee big flater. Great day

Minus 3 deg C in car park at 9am, +3 deg C at 4: 30pm
Sun with clouds in the morning, light a bit more flat in the afternoon. Low cloud over the upper runs for most of the day - got a big better around 2: 30pm. Skiing upper runs a bit more challenging as a result.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Nice snow all over to start with - packed powder, the squeaky kind I personally really liked. Lower slopes firmed up a bit, became more hardpacked as the day passed. Upper slopes good snow.
Good cover in main basin. Happy Valley, while open, involved a climb of a rocky and icy narrows section for 10-20m which was tricky to say the least so I did't go back down Happy Valley! The lower section of Happy Valley was good and way better than 2 weeks back when rocks were showing.
Surprisingly good and wide cover on Low Road and Rankin's return (good decision on that new run!); and plateau also was skiable the whole way down and had good width also.
For me, the run of the day was the Wall. Good snow, visibility better. I didn't go down Spring run given visibility.
Old Mugs Alley was in good shape but the top of the plateau area was a bit messy later in the day and care had to be taken to avoid some rocks, dirt etc
Coire Pollach tow area pretty thin on snow, I didn't this this would survive but I see today the hard workers at GCM were shovelling snow on to that today
Skiing to the base station looked feasible in the morning - albeit narrow in places - but was combat skiing in the afternoon.
