Glencoe update
Posted Friday 3rd February 2012, 6:27 pm by Dunx
There have been some stunning conditions this week with light wind, sunshine and some nice snow in places.

All this is expected to change overnight as an Atlantic front sweeps in bringing some much needed fresh snow.

All tows will run this weekend and all runs are open other than the flypaper, Etive and Rannoch glades.

Upper mountain


The Main Basin, Spring run and East ridge are providing some great skiing in sections with some icy patches in high traffic areas. Falling snow on Saturday is expected to improve these icy sections.

Mid mountain


The wall and wall crossover were providing the best sport during the week with New Mugs Alley providing the best route down to the plateau cafe.


Lower slopes


Are thin and narrow in places but perfectly skiable and the snow forecast for Saturday is expected to improve conditions here.

The beginners rope tow is open, providing a great dedicated area for beginners.

The weather for the weekend...


Saturday - Southerly 30-40mph with some stronger gusts. Heavy snow in the morning giving way to showers later in the afternoon with some breaks in the cloud.

Sunday - Looking good with a light westerly wind (20mph) and snow showers above 500m and some bursts of sunshine.

Early next week - Light winds, occasional snow showers and a good chance of cloud free munros.

Performance training starts this week at Glencoe - this is aimed at all junior skiers and snowboarders who want to improve there performance and will provide an introduction to racing and freestyle. The plan is to develop an elite squad of racers and freestylers at Glencoe over the coming years. Snowsports Scotland and Glencoe Mountain Resort are financially supporting this initiative so sessions are only 10 per child. To kick things of for the season the first session takes place this sunday between 1pm and 3pm. Please contact ski school to book.
