Glencoe, Saturday 27th April 2013

The upper slopes of Glencoe Mountain Resort have some of the best late season conditions we’ve seen in a long time and look set to offer skiing for the May holiday, depending on the weather of course.The snow is in great condition as it has remained dry, without the usual freeze/thaw action of a typical Scottish Winter. The Main Basin was fluffy with wind packed powder. Flypaper was steep and a wee bit scary (Scotland’s steepest marked run) and Happy Valley, skier’s left was in fine form. It’s astounding that ski areas are finished for the season in the USA and Europe, but Scotland persists!You may be out of luck if you can’t ride the drag lifts as the lower slopes have gone, but jump on the top T-bar at Glencoe and you’ll have a veritable snowy feast.
