Glencoe Mountain Resort update - 13th Jan 2012
Posted Friday 13th January 2012, 12:23 pm by Dunx
Despite the recent thaw we still have some good skiing on offer and a very favourable forecast for the weekend - sunshine and light winds (can you believe it light winds!!)

Conditions report



Upper Mountain - The main Basin is in good shape with a wide cover of firm snow with small pockets of fresh drifted powder.

The Spring run and East Ridge area have a great cover of snow but are very icy so are currently closed - this will be reviewed daily. Hopefully the sunshine forecast this weekend will help soften up these runs.


Upper Mountain


Mid Mountain - Mugs Alley is complete from the top of the Cliffy down to just below the plateau cafe. This is down the line of the new snow fencing and not the main Mugs Alley Route. There are also plenty of more adventurous lines back down from the cliffy as you can see in the picture below.

The wall T-bar uptrack and run is complete with a good wide cover of snow in most places.

Thrombosis is complete for the adventurous and the wall crossover gives a route back down to the plateau cafe.


Mid Mountain


Lower mountain - The Poma uptrack is complete with a good cover of snow and the plateau run has some large patches which will allow you with a bit of grass skiing to get back down to the top of the access chair.


Lower Mountain


We can't promise Alpine snow conditions as all runs are currently very firm but with light winds and sunshine forecast we may have some Alpine weather.

Since we don't have full cover adult lift pass prices will be £25 this weekend and £20 midweek until we get more snow.

Hopefully see you on the hill this weekend.
