:: Weather Conditions
sunny, some cloud around, occasional snow showers, strong winds early on, dropping considerably as the day went on
:: Snow Conditions & Info
fresh snow further improved cover, first thing was epic, loads of freshiess, drifting in with the wind. As the wind moderated the the crowds did the opposite, forming considerable queues on all lifts. There was a small park set up near the plateau cafe and little rail jam. Overall great cover, not many thin areas and some great skiing to be had!!

A cold day on the hill, freezing at all levels with a few convective snow showers coming through in the afternoon
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Still early season baseless conditions with a soft and unconsolidated snow cover which is windblown and thin in places with plenty of sharks lurking for the unwary. There are some deeper deposits against fence lines and in gullies and some weakly bonded windslab forming higher up on the hill.

:: Weather Conditions
cool day, no wind really, broken cloud, just above freezing. 2 or 3 deg C in car park at 9: 30am
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Really special day on Snow Factory generated snow. Around half of Coire Polach tow open. Great to be on the mountain again. Quite impressive depth of Snow Factory snow on Old Mugs Alley- prob 1.5 metres. Coire Polach tow track was interest but not too many rocks. Lot of new developments on the hill, in addition to Snow Factory. Met Ken (Eagles) and Alan from Winter Highland. New ski hire - ready for online ski hire - could make a huge difference to queues in the morning.

Started off miserable and rainy but cleared up to leave a dry day with sunny spells.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
A good ski to end the season, classic spring snow with most upper runs complete. Also possible to get to the base of Cliffy though it does involve grass skiing. Sad to see the season end but at least we had a good one!
