Glencoe Mountain update 6th Jan
Posted Friday 6th January 2012, 2:21 pm by Dunx

Conditions update - 6th Jan 2012





Snow cover on the mountain is looking very good again with all runs and tow tracks complete. Current snow conditions are very mixed with most of the upper runs being wind-scoured and icy while from the rescue shed down conditions are much nicer especially where pisted.

The weather this afternoon is expected to turn much warmer with some light rain which should have the effect of softening the snow up and overnight tonight some light snow is forecast so actual snow conditions tomorrow are very difficult to predict. Ski patrol will post a report just after 8am tomorrow morning.

The weather forecast for the weekend is a real mixed bag and some of the detail isn't tied down yet so please check reports nearer the time.

Saturday - 45mph North Westerly with some stronger gusts (may ease in the afternoon). Snow showers down to 400m and some sunny spells expected. It may be worth checking the conditions update in the morning before travelling as strong winds may affect uplift.

Sunday - 20mph westerly wind in the morning but the wind is expected to increase later in the day. Freezing levels will be above the summit and at some point in the day it is expected to start raining.

Monday - Just in time for the schools to go back - light winds, sunshine and a freezing level of around 700m

Tuesday onwards - the outlook currently doesn't look great (Still time for this to change) with higher temperatures and some rain.


Looking back down towards the bottom of the Poma



Spring run is absolutely loaded but currently a little firm according to ski patrol - means icy I think!! This should change however as the temperatures rise later today.



Looking towards the plateau cafe, very good cover down the New Mugs Ally



Unfortunately another shed almost bites the dust during the last windy spell - this is the summit shed and the one that we thought was the toughest on the mountain.
