Park building

At last, we have had a snowfall which put down serious amounts of packable snow on the summit runs which hopefully means a proper park can start to appear.  Up until now, the wind direction has stripped snow off the park area (depositing snow on the traverses) or else it has been so powdery that […]

Party up a Mountain

Nevis Nightshift

There was at least 5-6 inches of fresh snow on the slopes last night, with some drifting.  The snow had fallen right down to the gondola base station, which lies at 100m above sea level, and the town of Fort William, which sits beside a sea loch, was snow covered too.   Given the amazing conditions […]
