Can you spot the advance base camp, 40mins from the Carpark!!

How thin do you like it?

Not much more for the climbers than the skiers!

Some snow and ice is clinging on, on the Fiaciall Buttress's.

A partial base remains so there is at least something to build from on the upper Cas.

Traverse and Cas are still holding on to something of a base despite the vagaries of the recent weather.

Thanks to George Paton for this selection of photos from CairnGorm Mountain on Tuesday 4th January. Whatever winter activity your interested in, sadly the picture is fairly bleak, though there is some snow and ice hanging on in the Northern Corries.

Within the ski area the violent freeze/thaw cycling is continuing, and a partial base at least remains in the Top Basin and on the Traverse and upper Cas. We just need to break the current cycle with less harsh thaws or more substantial snowfalls in the cold spells we are getting.
