Looking down the Upper M2 which provides a route to the Ciste T-bar, top of the Fairway needs a bit more.

Good windblown fresh in the Cas Boulderfield between the T-bar up and down lines.

Carpark Run officially open via Burnside so the full Cas side vertical is available off the Funicular.

Ciste T-bar made it's season debut today.

There has been around 4-5 inches of fresh snow fall on CairnGorm Mountain in the past day and a half, that combined with significant drifting has brought about an improvement in the open route off the Funicular and allowed the Ciste T-bar to make it's season debut.

The Funicular is now running non stop as the Carpark Runs are officially open via Burnside and the Home Road is also skiable. The Funicular running non stop gives a significant increase in potential uplift capacity and snow making is continuous on the lower slopes to help improve the developing base.

Up in the Top Basin the Ciste T-bar joined the Polar Express trainer tow in being open, but there are still some thing and narrow sections where areas of drifting have been joined together by the machines. Route to the base of the T-bar is via the top of the M2 then across the West Wall Poma onto the lower portion of the Ciste Fairway. The rest of the Fairway and the Ciste Bowl and top of the Ptarmigan Tow area require more snow to open.
