Fresh over night snow covered much of the mid mountain up and by 10:00 the sun was shining at all levels. The new snow covered the firmed up base nicely giving smooth carving. I did the cas a couple of times top to bottom with out stopping getting a nice controlled rhythm going, a pleasure when you have the conditions to do this. The cas remained in good condition right through the day although a little softer.
All mid and upper runs were in good form, the Lady was very nice most of the morning but did become a little scraped in the after noon. The ciste gully was excellent but you now have to traverse out high as the lower has a lack of snow.
With out question the best run of the day was the Aonach Bowl, entering from Ryvoan you can cut across to the middle and on to the fresh. Unfortunately this was tracked out very quickly so we headed back to the gully.
The west wall was nice but a bit lumpy from yesterday, the gully was better.
A number of people were heading off piste, up on to the east ptarmigan and over to gully 1+2. The snow is still very thin in these places but it looks like they were having fun.
Again very few people around. The cas and M1 lifts were empty much of the time, the WWP was deserted. Occasionally the ciste t-bar had some people when a couple of classes arrived together but most oft he time was ski on.
By 15:00 snow showers were starting again, hopefully tomorrow will be a repeat of today, finger crossed.
The cas was superb to ski first thing, good dry fresh snow on a firm base.
Ciste Fairway and upper runs, the new snow changed the surface very nicely
The Ciste gully, well look at it!
The Aonach Bowl, the best ski of the day.
West wall a bit lumpy in places but nice when you could find the fresh.
The return to the WWP is getting quite tricky now and the tow path is getting thin. I hope it holds out a bit longer.
