Very little wind with broken cloud, made for a great days riding. Top 10% of the mountain had a cover of Scotch mist cling to it for most of the day, but this cleared at about 3pm(ish). There was a short heavy snow shower in the afternoon that was very nice.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Great cover , Muggs Alley was pretty much flat(filled in) same as Etive Glades(great for cruising), Happy Valley was loaded with snow(flat). The Main Basin was qualty, hits(natural kickers) all over it.. The Wall was great as per usual........I never went near the Plateau(had plenty of snow+bit scraped at the bottom later in the day+pister will sort it, loads of snow about)

Hard pack powder first thing in the morning which turned kinda slushy as the day went on. It became sticky for a short time(all that sun), before a snow shower freshened things up.

Great day.....(Nice kicker+gap) built near the bottom of the Low Road)

Thin cloud breaking up around 15: 00. Very light NE wind. Freezing level (guess) around 2500 ft.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Very nice snow, but one or two rocks to avoid, particularly midway down the top runs. There are some good moguls too - at the top of the main basin and then again lower down, but these are optional. You can ski almost all the way down to the car. All runs are ski-able, and pretty good fun, though Fly Paper is posted "Closed Avalanche Risk".

Blue skies. Freezing. perfect.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Good base, but not enough to cover sticky-up rocks on Etive Glades. Fresh snow higher-up from overnight dusting. Increasing drifting during the day as wind picked up. Main basin tracked out and mogulled. Road over to Spring Run rideable with a few pushed. Spring Run in brilliant conditions. Good snow, not too much riden. Great for carving sharp fast turns on the steeps. Ride out very good to. Able to link stream bed patches of powder and more solid base together to wiggle down to Mugs Alley, the Low Road and return via Poma.

some sunny spells but with cloud cover at summit
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Good one to two day old snow with depth of two feet on steep roll-off the length of East Ridge. Cover well down SE burn to 650metres, then boot track formed to access top of Mugs Alley, although I skinned up twice. Some excellent runs down this ridge and the drop off into lower coire.
