Started off with poor visibility and got steadily worse. By the end of play there were only a few folks left with radar or echo location required to navigate the terrain!!
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Good cover up top. Goose had great cover. The new snow improved cover on lower slopes as day progresses with the gravel entry to the quad chair gone by end of play. Nevis were trying to get summit button on for some time, but it has issues that were not resolved. I don't think too many folks cared though with the poor visibility! Goose was the pick nice snow esp first couple of runs where freshies could be had. God a bit chopped up later and challenging taking on the chop in the very poor visibility later. Skiiers left of quad chair improved through the day, skiiers left off goose pretty good too. Yockies was OK lumpy up top. rabbit run was better route back. Quiet, no question got my money's worth despite the Vis!

Thin and narrow in places, summit and terrain park in best nick. There was a lot of work to be done on preparing the summit so it took until late afternoon to open. best run was summit. just bring your rockhoppers and a sense of humour and you should have fun.

Sunny to start, then cloud rolled in for a while covering tops. Cloud lifted to overcast with occasional sunny spells
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Spring Snow conditions. Goose got pretty chopped up, skiers left of T-Bar was actually better. Summit button had delayed opening due to electrical fault, came on about 11AM. Summit run least spring like and fastest snow. Warrans T-Bar (unusually) ran all day, runs either side were good, right hand side especially good. Winger wall was skiing well on soft spring snow, with the entrance moving ever skiers left as rocks were uncovered. Egress out via high line had max 2 mins walk, via low line 3 mins walk. Low line required use of Rob-Roy T-Bar to regain rob-roy traverse back to base station. Nid wall was another pick for steep snow, and the ability to take a higher traverse back to Yokies and to descend to Alpha rather that side step up to it. I lapped this via Alpha and Warrens several times. Lots of big cornices fenced off along the ridge, beyond these, the usual entrance into the backs was pretty benign, and vast number of options using Braveheart. Lapped this for a few hours too. Great day, perhaps my last of this season. Drone 360 of backs should give decent indication of cover: https: //goo.gl/maps/wJqZyXww9Xo

A mix of sunny intervals and overcast spells and occasional fog around the summit
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Let's just say there is a lot of snow. Extensive cover across the whole hill and loads of buried fences. Off piste was great but it was slightly windblown and choppy and there was the odd rock/scoured area. Great snow on all slopes

Mainly sunny, little wind and freezing level above the tops. Great views in all directions
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Wide cover across the hill. Great skiing on the groomed areas. Unfortunately that didn't cover the Goose, Allt Sneachda, the 4man chairlift runs or Warrens. Off the groomed runs the base was hard and icy in places with a light covering of fresh snow. One minute it was nice and soft, next you were scraping over thinly covered ice. Braveheart was broken down but people were still dropping in... eventually for some
