The Upper Cas.

Traverse is complete but thin, but the skiable snow runs out in Coire Cas.

View across the Plateau towards Macdui, scope for high level touring.

Limited sport is available in the Top Basin, on the Ciste Fairway with the West Wall Poma and/or the Ciste Tow providing uplift. The run is narrow in bits, and there are some rocks to avoid, but the surface conditions are decent with fresh powdery snow overlying a firm base.

Possible for those touring to skin up from the 105 to the Summit via the Traverse, Ptarmigan Run and Marquis Well. Reports that it is possible to get all the way to Macdui with skis on.
