Piles of snow cleared from the road, to jump or not to jump? In the distance those that chose not to jump lived to make it down the Carpark Run...

Boarder on the Cas, in the background the banks of snow dug out from the lower Zig Zags.

The Aonach Bowl unpisted freshies !!

The Aonach Bowl and Aonach Poma, best sport on the mountain!

CairnGorm Mountain from below the bottom station.

Another great day comes to an end. Ski Patroller in the Cas Gunbarrel.

White Lady from the Carpark Chairlift. That Piste Basher has a lot of work to do!

Contractors work to secure more sections to the cable crane pylon.

A part built Cable Crane pylon towers above the White Lady Chairlift from the upper Lady, by the elephant fences.

Report
Friday saw another day of mostly blue skies under which to enjoy the overnight freshies, though a few sharp snow showers blotted out the sun around the middle of the day, further improving the excellent surface conditions. On the slopes all main runs remained complete, but some of the Cas Side of the mountain was out of action as funicular contractors worked to dig out the hill track they urgently needed for access to the Ptarmigan. With the Lady Chair, M1 Poma, Fiacaill Tow, Carpark Tow, and Ridge Poma out of action, the main action was taking place in Coire Na Ciste and on the White Lady, while beginners were now unable to access the Ptarmigan Bowl, and were restricted to the lower slopes and the Sheiling Tow and Carpark Chair.
