Coire Cas Gunbarrel is seriously narrow in places and equally banked.

Blue sky and unbroken blazing sunshine on CairnGorm Mountain...

Boarders on the Ciste Fairway.

The upper Cas, limited narrow cover, but nice spring snow.

Looking up Coire Cas from the top of the Gunbarrel.

The Traverse, though broken at the top link from the Ptarmigan to top of M1 Race Track, has beautiful loose fast spring snow.

Blue sky day, looking up the Ciste Fairway. Runs are narrow, but cant complain about the weather!

Report
Thursday was a super day weather wise, and despite the very limited cover the snow conditions were pretty good with spring snow on a firm base. Friday was a cloudier day, but the cloud should gradually break through the weekend to give increasing sunny spells as high pressure remains in control.

Main action is taking place in the Top Basin, where there are still some good nursery areas in the Ptarmigan Bowl. Runs are narrow, but both routes from the top of the Ptarmigan Tow are complete.

There is also skiing on the Traverse, 105 and Coire Cas though the Traverse is broken at the top of the M1, however the Traverse and 105 had the best snow on Thursday with nice spring snow, the route is complete down the 105 into the Cas to the first tower of the Cas Tow. The Coire Cas Tow will be open at the weekend.
