The Lady about to see first tracks for 2007!

Ciste Tow is ready to rock! Bring it on...

Carpark Runs thin with unconsolidated snow but doable with care for return or for skinning up. Less horrors under the snow than on the home road.

Cat tracks head out from the Top Station. Link Lift Poma now has cable and could be seeing its first action for a number of years soon.

The top of the Traverse by the M1 Poma - good cover between the fences.

Top terminal of the M1 Poma.

The Phone Box by the Funicular.

Looking up over the Burnside option from outside the Daylodge.

View up Coire Na Ciste. Would have been a great day for sightseeing !

Coire Cas from near the Daylodge.

Making tracks - skinning up the Traverse.

Tracks on the Traverse.

Fresh tracks on a loaded M2. Possible to ski to Carpark Via M2/Daylodge Poma with care.

Report
Though no uplift is yet open people were out getting turns in across the mountain with the Ciste Fairway, M2, the M1 Race Track, M1 SideTrack, the White Lady and the Traverse seeing action. Though thin with unconsolidated snow it was possible to return to the Carpark via the Carpark Runs and Daylodge Poma, and it's possible for those with touring kit to skin up via the Zig Zags, Cas, Traverse/Ptarmigan Traverse and Marquis Well to near the Summit.

Thanks to Gunni and H11lly for todays photos from CairnGorm. Please send your photos to pix@winterhighland.info.
