Unbroken Sunshine on CairnGorm Mountain on Monday and the forecast says more of the same for Tuesday and hopefully Wednesday as well. Though with inversion conditions the inversion layer can suddenly shift and put the bluebird back in the cage!

Surface conditions are likely to start hardpacked, with the best riding on the newly groomed stuff, however if the Sun is out then sunlit aspects should loosen up to some degree, but how much may vary with height and off sunlit slopes the snow may well stay hard high up even if the temperature is well above freezing due to the very dry air above the inversion.

Expect surface conditions to vary by time of day, aspect and elevation and randomly as the inversion layer may shift around, so exploring the mountain is the only sure fire way to find the best turns. All available uplift is scheduled, so apart from the Ciste T-bar in the Top Basin and the M1 Poma queues were small on Monday.
