Sunday dawned clear over CairnGorm Mountain and though some cloud came and went there were long periods of sunshine. The clear dawn followed a cold and frosty night which set the snow up hard on the lower mountain.
As the snow loosened up more people again headed onto the steeps and off-piste with fantastic spring riding for advanced skiers and boarders in Coire Na Ciste, with the Ciste Gully the pick of the day.
Extensive cover remains above mid-station level with large tracts of off-piste snow on offer on the middle and upper levels. Great spring riding is available for all ability levels.
Once again snow will firm up overnight, best conditions likely at the top and on recently pisted areas if your heading up first thing. The Lower Slopes are not advised first thing, but are easily passable once the surface softens with the Fiacaill Ridge providing the best route to the Daylodge. The Carpark and Daylodge runs are passable with care (head out from the fences on the Daylodge). Skiable to the Ciste Carpark via the Aonach Ridge and the Laogh Mor Return.
