Looking up from the DayLodge.

24hrs later, a great day to admire the view from the top!

(Thurs 1st March) Brrr! Yes it was as cold as it looks.

The Ptarmigan Bowl brimming with snow.

24hrs later, no wind and the sun comes out.

Looking up CairnGorm.

(Thurs 1st March) A bitter winter's day, with severe windchill, but great snow!

Report
Saturday 3rd March dawned snowy and wild, and given the press coverage suggesting the ski areas would be shut by Sunday, a huge queue was building at the Glenmore Gates from early morning.

By 8am things were looking bleak, with a blizzard raging, and the link road under a foot of drifting snow, but with the queue already back beyond Loch Morlich, and the real threat of this being the last day of the season there was only every going to be one decision, and shortly after 8am the Glenmore Gates were duly opened and the impatient hordes were let through to do battle with white stuff.

It was never going to be a classic day, storm force winds, and 6 deep queues for the M1 Poma don't a good day make!
