The Elephant Fence on the White Lady disappearing... maybe we need a Mammoth Fence?

Carpark Run now complete with fairly decent top to Daylodge riding.

105 and Coire Cas. Snow on the 105 near the top of the new fence, so well above the height of the old fences here.

M1 SideTrack was seeing quite a bit of Piste Basher traffic so was a blast all day.

Overall pick of the day was the M1 RaceTrack, with a Westerly wind it was catching a regular top up.

The Traverse is banked out to a wide motorway. Beyond the headwall and Fiacaill a' Choire Chais looking rather scary!

Thanks to Helen (H11lly) for the photos from Thursday, there are more and a detailed report on the day in the Public Reports.

If you have been out playing please spare a few minutes to submit a report to the Public Reports or email your photos to pix2014@winterhighland.info and we'll stick them in the Pix from the Slopes.

A fairly wild day on CairnGorm, but less severe as you dropped down from the Top Station into Coire Cas. Mid and upper mountain is in great shape having got a lot of fresh windblown snow in recent days.

Uplift on Thursday was the Funicular, Fiacaill Ridge and M1 Pomas and the Coire Cas T-bar. Similar wind speeds forecast for Friday, though slightly different direction. Top Basin requires quite a bit of work and the wind would need to lessen to open the Top Tows and West Wall Poma. When it does open the Ciste Gully will be in even better shape with a lot of drifting on SE winds earlier in the week.
