Last Update 15.00hrs on Friday 29th Nov 2013
Though some new snow has fallen today there isn't currently enough snow to open for snowsports this weekend.
On the basis of current forecasts CML think it's unlikely that there will be snowsports before Sat 8th Dec - but the outlooks turning progressively colder next week after things get a bit milder for a couple of days after today's cold blast.
CairnGorm Mountain will be open daily for snowsports from the resumption for the 2014 season, so keep up the snow dances.

|0°c at SSC Hut. Wind N-NW 15 to 25mph at Mid Station, much stronger on the tops. Squally snow showers. |

It's the last weekend of the Christmas Market in the Ptarmigan Restaurant at the top of the Funicular.
