A dry but hazy day with some brighter spells on CairnGorm Mountain with some great riding for all ability levels.
Lift served sliding remains confined to the Cas side and Top Basin, but the Carpark and Fiacaill Ridge Pomas are able to run now. Fiacaill Ridge was running Tuesday and both can run if demand.
Good quality Top to Daylodge riding offers 1650ft of vertical suitable for early intermediates up as it can all be done on greens and a short section of easy blue terrain by hitting the Traverse at the top of the Ptarmigan Tow and sweeping down into Coire Cas, then the 105 and either the Zig Zags, Chicken Gully or the Cas Gunbarrel which is fairly flat now.
White Lady is the pick of the mountain at present and offering great sport for more advanced riders, as is the M1 SideTrack (between poma and Funicular) and there is good cover on the links back to the M1 Poma. M1 RaceTrack remains wind scoured though slowly starting to refill.
The top of the West Wall Poma track is scoured around the top of the Chairlift, machines have moved some snow onto this, but substantial gap requiring plugged that may have to wait for more snow to fall or drift in. It's all that's preventing the Ciste Gully and West Wall from opening, and if the WWP could open along with the Daylodge Poma and OverYonder it would provide alternative uplift for the Cas side for advanced riders.
