Fresh tracks, fresh powder, by the Lady T-bar.

The East Wall is loaded, but an avalanche risk at present.

Sweeter than a bowl of sugar, the powder ladden Aonach Bowl, less said about the poma the better!

The full width and fully complete Aonach lies idle, arguably the best run on the mountain in such conditions.

Across the Aonach Bowl to the East Wall Gully from OverYonder.

CairnGorm Summit and the Ptarmigan from the M2, notice burried fences!

Skier packed powder on the M1.

The 105 and Traverse from Coire Cas, you can drop of the Traverse anywhere, or keep high up and traverse to Coronation Wall.

Funicular and tracked up powder on the East Lady.

White Lady, and East Lady. The East Lady is skaible anywhere between Lady Luck and The Hut Route!!

A full Cas Carpark Midweek, from the FRP. Arrive early this weekend to beat the crowds, by 8am if possible.

Blazing Sun and Powder... Just another day on the 'Gorm! The mountain from the Ridge Poma.

East Lady, White Lady, M1, Traverse and Coronation Wall from the Fiacaill Ridge.

Loch Morlich from high on the East Lady.

Tut Tut....

The Lady living up to it's name..... White!!!

Report
The day of the 2005 season thus far, blue sky powder day on the 'Gorm, at least till mid-afternoon, when the weather started closing in. Some more snow on the way....

Basically the photos say it all. Just about every run on the mountain is complete, with the almost sole exception of the Gunbarrel. The wind was picking up late Thursday afternoon, and drifting snow is what the Gunbarrel needs to fill properly.

Excellent sport across the area on the piste terrain, with superb machine packed powder. Off piste, still plenty of powder to be found, and a bit of wind tonight should redistribute it ready for fresh tracks on Friday morning. For the powder hounds, try the East Lady, the Aonach or Corination Wall, for the budding powder hound throw yourself off the Traverse!

People have been doing the Headwall, but beware it avalanches, as does the East and West Wall, thus both Walls and the Ciste Gully are currently closed due to avalanche risk.

Finally thanks to George Paton for today's photos. If you've been out, send your photos to pix@winterhighland.com and help keep this service as up to date as possible.
