Coire Cas has wide cover, great for intermediates up.

Upper Cas is well filled with deep cover.

Top Basin is in really good shape still, hopefully Ciste T-bar will reopen over the weekend.

Ptarmigan Traverse has wide cover. Top Basin is excellent for early intermediates.

Piste Basher working in the Ptarmigan Terrain Park.

Setting up the terrain park for the weekend Slopestyle Comp.

Polar Express Trainer Tow.

Ciste Fairway closed, Ciste Tow out of action but should be fixed during the weekend.

Can still get down the lower slopes using the Carpark Uptrack.

Looking over the Zig Zags to the Fiacaill Crossover.

Gunbarrel is flat and pretty easy going.

Fiacaill Sideslope is the best route to the base.

Zig Zags are in decent shape in part thanks to snow making on the lower 2 legs.

What might have been with a Chairlift, West Wall has loads of snow but no uptrack on the Poma.

Light winds and a decent dose of Sunshine on CairnGorm on Friday. The full Cas side vertical is still possible via the Fiacaill or with care via the Carpark Run using the T-bar uptrack.

Best cover is up in the Top Basin, but the Ciste T-bar has been out of action following a gear box fault. It's hoped it will be back in action at some point during the weekend, but it may not be on Saturday.

Mid mountain Coire Cas is in great shape with a fairly wide cover out across the boulderfield, Gunbarrel is flat, but if you wish to avoid it the Zig Zags are in decent nick. The base is firm to hard packed, but some loose fresher snow on top and some softening to spring snow in places Friday.
