:: CairnGorm Mountain Official Report

Last Update 20.13hrs on Tuesday 9th Feb 2016

The White Lady has caught some nice fresh snow in the upper half, it has now firmed and set up nicely, it is still narrow into the M1 in the lower third. The M1 piste has re opened, it is narrow and thin in some sections. The Ptarmigan and Ciste bowls have a lot of new snow and good cover, with the Fairway narrow in the lower section. The lower slopes remain closed due to insufficient snow. The top two zig zags are open to the Gunbarrel cross over into the Middle station. Forecast is for stronger overnight winds and heavy snow which will help improve cover.
