I was up at Nevis for the weekend, freeloading in a motorhome in the CP. Skied Friday, brilliant day, snow Goose gully and Warrens both under T-Bar (which was not running), and skiiers left of T-Bar was superb. Headed up to peer over the backs, but given the wind AM, and the fog when I went for a second look PM, I bailed and went down warrens instead. Fair weather only back corries for me!
On Saturday I head off with a mate from the CP to bag the Aonach's, mate bailed at Aonach Mor, I watched some skiiers on Summit Gully before heading onwards to Aonach Beag - quite a bit of wind-slab to avoid on Aonach Beag, but managed a safe route up, Now 44 Munro's left to go! Watched some guys climbing up the side of summit gully, then headed back to the CP. Neigh lifts used, that would be cheating!
On Sunday I was in two minds as vis looked poor, but went up anyway. Vis was pretty terrible from half way up the goose, but oddly enough, better either side of the summit poma. Skiied a mix of Goose Gully and warrens (many many more rocks showing vs Friday). Snow lower part of goose was not great, quite a few rocks exposed, and some ice about, but decent high up. Bailed at mid-day and got my £8 quid rebate after queueing for 30 mins - hoards of folks, generally non-skiiers/boarders queueing for a ticket from lunch.
Needs a good dump of snow before I head up again, maybe Glenshee next weekend if it survives the thaw this week.
Agree re queue they could do with opening earlier - maybe flogging ski passes when they open for winter climbers. They could make it such that the gondola would not accept them until 9am. Like you say though 1000% better organised than CG. A dogs dinner is better organised than CG!
