Lady and M1 uptrack now broken, though Lady still do-able from top to mid-station.

Looking up the top of the Traverse, still 2-3 machines width here that probably wouldn't be without the new fencing.

Gun barrel still fairly flat, but a worn bit appearing at the bottom suggesting not much depth low down.

Rebuilding the Zig Zags ahead of tonights expected temperature drop.

Dozing snow down onto the second leg of the Zig Zags.

Coire Cas still in decent shape cover wise, but the snow was a bit slow today.

Traverse still in decent nick, though not a huge depth by some recent years standards.

New fencing on the 105 showing it's worth, good depth of snow still on here into Gunbarrel merge.

Bit of a direch afternoon on CairnGorm Mountain, but not as wet as further West and there was top to mid-station riding available via the Traverse and Coire Cas.

No uplift run in the Top Basin today, but the Ptarmigan and Ciste Bowls still have good cover, though the Ciste Fairway is reportedly getting narrower in places. Great areas for learning and early intermediates up top and CairnGorm is the best option for those seeking green and easier blue level terrain.

Can ride from the top of the Ptarmigan Tow to mid-station entirely on green runs. Zig Zags were closed today as the piste bashers were moving snow around to build up the base on the 2nd leg ahead of tonight's temperature drop. Will allow 3/4 of Gunbarrel to be bypassed, though it was fairly flat and mellow today.

Very quiet with reportedly only 6 skiers on the mountain, but then the forecast is much better for later in the week. Sadly the M1 uptrack is well broken and the White Lady is getting a bit patchy. Experts can combat ride and pick there way pretty much to the Daylodge, but a bit of heather hoping and careful route selection required!
