:: Weather Conditions
Early snow showers, moderate Northerly wind, cleared a bit in the afternoon.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Long queues broken by brief but excellent descents. Coire Fionn largely unpisted; bumps developed by lunchtime. Good skiable off-piste at bottom of Meall Odhar (off run to Tom Dearg poma) and between runs on Cairnwell/Claybokie. Tiger doable if stay close to fence on N side of run. Didn't ski Butcharts or Carn Aosda; plenty of skiers/boarders off piste on latter.

Wasn't too cold out the wind. In the wind at the top of the lifts it was bitter. Wind was strong giving a windchill so need to cover exposed skin.

Started off sunny but snow showers later which were blizzard like at the summits.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Carn Aosda/Butcherts - thin in places. Queues very long.

Sunnyside - thin in places. Queues not so bad as Carn Aosda.

Tom Dearg - not too bad.

Coire Fionn - lots of snow and hardly any rocks or grass showing! Only the runs beside the pomas were open.

Lifts were causing problems on Sunnyside/Tom Dearg/Coire Fionn which meant queue problems from time to time

Queues for ski hire - apparantly taking 3 hours to get served. I saw them queuing from the ski hire shop back towards the clothes shop and up the road.

The whole of Scotland judging my the queue for tickets and equipment!

Wind was pretty strong, with snow showers, vis was good, but reduced in the showers, freezing level was below the car park
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Nice packed powder on most runs, most runs complete but narrow in patches, ground underneath is frozen hard, a few rocks espcially off piste on Carn Aosda. Runs open to Coire Fionn, but only skied Butcharts Access. Cairnwell and Butcharts Coire T bars were broken due to mechanical failures. Very busy with long queues on all tows. Mainly due to Lecht and Aviemore roads being blocked early on.
