Small bumps in the Cas Gunbarrel late afternoon.

Looking up the Upper Cas which has wide cover both sides of the uptrack.

Mid Cas at approaching the 105 merge.

Carpark Run still skiable using the uptrack, Fiacaill Crossover / Sideslope more fun for better skiers and boarders.

Ciste Bowl and all the Top Basin Runs have full cover.

Excellent conditions in the Top Basin, Park in the Ptarmigan Bowl and Half Pipe up at the top of the T-bar.

Early inversion mist burnt off to give a bright and Sunny day on CairnGorm Mountain, if a little bit hazier than in the West.

Snow started firm but loosened up to nice granular spring snow in the Sun. All the Top Basin runs, the Traverse, Coire Cas including the Gunbarrel have good cover, but there is no snow outwith the runs. The lady is thin in places but a fun ski when it softens up, when freshly groomed it's tended to be firm and grippy rather than too slick, so good for those with sharp edges.

Can still ride to the Daylodge via the Carpark Run using the T-bar uptrack or for a longer run via the Fiacaill Traverse, Fiacaill Crossover, Sideslope and lower Ridge Run to the base of the Fiacaill Ridge Poma. Funicular is mid-stopping, but the Ridge Poma is running for access to the M1 and Cas Tows and the Sideslope run.

There are a number of features of varying sizes in the Ptarmigan park and the Marquis Well Half Pipe has been open after a reshape last week at the top of the Ptarmigan Tow.
