Arrived to light winds in the car park at 9am, but were told that there was to much wind at the top. Waited until 10am, with no change in wind strength in the car park, but less wind at the top.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Light winds in the car park all day, but at the top of access chairlift, it pciked up. However, from 10am onwards, the wind did not affect skiing, as the slopes were mostly sheltered from the WSW wind.

Snow cover was excellent, with great riding all over the mountain. The pick of the day was the Spring Run, which was steep and loaded with fresh snow. Also, the black/red/blue runs below the access chairlift were seeing a lot of action through the day. I would recommend starting your decent by heading out to the LHS towards the Black run, then cutting back into the middle Red run below the chairlift, then traversing to the RHS to finish on the Blue run.

Snowing in the morning. Sunny from around 11. Was warm in the sun during the afternoon. 2 degrees in the car park when we left.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
All runs had full cover of fresh snow on a hard base. Some nice areas off piste. A number of people were removed from Glas Maol by ski patrol for not adhering to closed and avalanche risk signs.

Sunny spells with cloudy periods, excellent visibility in the sunshine, poor in the cloud
:: Snow Conditions & Info
On piste it was very good everywhere. Tiger was icy under a thin fresh layer. Off piste westerly aspects were good, easterly aspects much less so and scoured. Caenlochan, Meal Odhar and Glas Maol excellent. Glas Maol black bowl and west wall closed due to Avalanche risk, evidence of recent Avalanche activity. Red excellent until it got chopped up but plenty of off piste opportunity all around. Pity there's milder weather on the way.
