Bluebird, barely a cloud in the sky but some moving in mid afternoon.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Snow started firm, though nice on the groomed surfaces especially the Grainian run in stark comparison to the Caenlochan and Meall Odhar which weren't too good today. Glad we got most of the best piste snow before the afternoon when it became a porridge like. Despite this the off piste was great throughout the whole day. Best runs were Glas Maol and the Grainian run first thing. A great day despite being stuck on the Cairnwell Chair for about 30mins as the hydraulic hose for the braking system came adrift so we had to wait while they fired up the back up engine

Overcast with some sunny spells and patches of blue sky. Fog on the tops at times. A mild +7.0 in the carpark at 10: 45

The snow is still thawing though there is still plenty of spring snow to play... Just bring your rock hoppers and a sense of humour!

Mostly cloudy with ocasional sunny intervals in the morning before the cloud came down in the afternoon bringing in some patchy light rain.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Although on the approach it may look grim, there is good snow on pistes and 95% of pistes and lifts open. Most runs have reasonable cover though there are thin areas. Also some off piste if you don't mind adventure skiing! Good spring snow to be had though slightly sticky in places.

Cloudy with snow grains falling first thing. Gradually brightened to mostly sun and a few clouds above summits.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Great piste skiing first thing on Cairnwell side. Light packed new snow hardly any harder areas. PM softened but Maol red was tricky as the cold wind compacted the fresh stuff. Shoulder beside the tow was great, soft and pisted. Overhang on black is immense. Speaking to a patroller, everyone expecting to work till 15th April, after that an application must be made to extend the Glas Maol season. Probably depend on numbers more than snow.
