Piste Bashers reshaping the large kickers in the Ptarmigan Bowl.

M1 RaceTrack mostly full width between the fences out via Horizon Road, which is the best option. Below timing hut is complete but narrower.

Gunbarrel still in decent shape with loose granular spring snow, crossover into Cas Tow loading gantry thin, but easily passable.

Report
CairnGorm Mountain is offering 1300ft of vertical with Top to Sheiling riding. All Top Basin runs complete with a good cover of spring snow, with excellent beginner areas in the Ptarmigan Bowl.

Mid mountain the Traverse, 105 and full length of Coire Cas are offering good spring riding for intermediates upwards, the Gunbarrel still reasonably wide and the top two legs of the Zig Zags are also complete allowing most of the Gunbarrel to be bypassed.

For more advanced riders the M1 RaceTrack is full width between the fences on the upper section out to the Cas via Horizon Road. The lower RaceTrack is skiable, but narrow by the timing hut. For experts the White Lady and Fiacaill Traverse provide some alternative lines, but a bit of hoofing is required to get off these and back to the lifts. Unfortunately the West Wall Poma track is broken lower down, however it will run at the weekend for additional Top Basin uplift if demand.
