The White Lady, living up to it's name!

Looking down the mid section of Coire Cas.

The upper leg of the Zig Zags, looking to M1. Zig Zags full width, well pisted.

Superb Snow, Blue Sky, CairnGorm Mountain in October... The M1 Poma doing it's stuff!

Skier ponders the options, Lady or M1! Looking up the M1 SideTrack, fullwidth, lovely pisted snow.

Look October snow... looking down the M1 SideTrack.

Is that a Cloud?

Looking west to the Fiacaill Buttress, from near top of the M1 Poma.

The Funicular.

Ciste Tow and Ptarmigan Bowl from Top Station.

Wow, look at that, is that a cloud dear???

Skier on the 105, Traverse in background, looking to the top.

The Ptarmigan, with it's winter coat! Venison Casserole, highly recommended.

On route to the 'Gorm. Sneachda and Lochan from the Glenmore Gates. Looks white, but climbing conditions needs a thaw/freeze cycle.

Autumn Scotland style, what can you say?? CairnGorm has offered up five consecutive days, of fine cold crisp weather, keeping the superb October snow in great condition. Once again the Forecast is good for Thursday, if you haven't been up yet, drop everything and get up there while you can. It's only October, but conditions on the mountain are arguably better than much of last season, but the good weather won't last, sadly a mild, wet and windy breakdown is on the cards for Friday. CairnGorm Mountain shuts after Sunday for annual maintenance on the funicular.

There is some quite awesome sport to be had, given that it's still October. Best sport for experts is on the M1, and M1 Side Track, both are full width and well pisted, machine packed dry snow, lovely! Plenty of scope for off-piste too, moderate off-piste below/above Traverse, and for the experts, the rarely skiable East Lady. Get up there!
