Amazing you found your phone Headnip, I donít suppose there are many others that would be skiing / boarding off that point!.
This is actually Shona's up date and pictures as I am moping around the house like a bear with a sore head, on is it skier with a sore knee, which is the most dangerous to approach? gurrrrr...
Visibility was poor most of the day with snow falling till after 14:00. The new snow freshened up the firm base and is still accumulating at the top. The mid station is wet and the gun barrel was a bit scraped and hard. Zig zags and boulder field nice and dry fresh snow.
Still possible to get to car park using the fiacaill ridge but does involve some heather skiing. Not for Shona though as she has nice shiny new touring skis.
Next week is the May bank holiday and the official end to the winter ski season. Your last chance to use uplift before the summer ski season starts so come on up!
Graeme for Shona. (She is updating her face book page)
First thing new snow in the carpark and low cloud
Mid station a bit wet but you can see the gun barrel is good right to the end
Just look at the Cas, wide with fresh snow. And Sam adjusting his new boots.
Visibility not so good but fresh dry snow falling.
Snow still accumulating at the top, the fences are gone and the signs are going under again.
