A different perspective on the boarder. Cable Crane Tower, dwarfs everything in the Ptarmigan Bowl.

   
The Ice Clad Steel Frame of the new Ptarmigan Restaurant stands out against the blue sky, something we were to see plenty more off during winter 2001!

Skiers and Boarders enjoying the start of the 2001 season.

Boarder heads past the New Ptarmigan, and the portacabins that later served as the 'Ptarmigan SnackShack'.

Report
By late November further snowstorms had further improved the cover on CairnGorm Mountain, the Top Station of the White Lady Chairlift was more than half buried. However Mid December saw savage thaws, leaving only the Ptarmigan Bowl, and the Traverse, 105, and Zig Zags where construction traffic had packed down the snow with a complete cover.

By late December new snow had returned, and with the funicular construction finally over, and the ski area ready for action, the 2001 season got of to a belated start towards the end of the December with the best part of two months of snowsports already lost due to the construction work on CairnGorm, and unfortunately no other area had got anywhere near as much November snow!
