White Lady Challenger Ken heading down after 40runs!

The White Lady Challenge Score Card.

Wipeout on the Carpark Tow track, just hackable to Daylodge.

Looking up the Cas Gunbarrel from the M1 loading area.

Heading for another run on the White Lady.

Rocks! Lady narrowing in middle, but complete via the skirt.

Upper White Lady still fairly wide, narrows below the middle.

A brief attempt at brightening up. Looking over the car park runs.

Report
A misty damp day but with little wind on CairnGorm gave very flat light and at times very poor visibility.

A shame because the spring snow bumps on the White Lady would offer fantastic fun sport if you could see them properly. It threatened to brighten a few times but never really lifted.

Top Basin runs retain a generally good cover. Most Cas side middle runs are complete except the M1 RaceTrack. White Lady is complete back to the M1 Poma via the 'skirt' and generally is a decent width apart from a short bit just before you veer left on to the 'skirt'. Gunbarrel remains fairly flat and wide, but was getting heavy going, unlike the 105 and White Lady which have good granular spring snow.

Zig Zags remain complete and in good condition, but the depth is reducing. Thaw is continuing at all levels and the top section of the Cas is getting patchy, tow is still running to the top though which provides access to the Fiacaill Traverse which is fully complete.

Possible to just get down the Carpark Run for good skiers, but boarders will almost certainly have to unclip in bits. Funicular mid-stopping now.
