Still a fence depth of snow along the Ptarmigan Traverse despite the thaw during the week.

Looking up from a quiet carpark. Cas still complete to mid-station, but some hoofing required from the White Lady.

Ciste Bowl retains wide cover. Good Spring Snow, but may get heavy later Sunday in the warm temps.

Looking up the Ciste T-bar.

Report
Hill mist came and went at times on Saturday, but it stayed dry. Despite mild temperatures and blustery winds through the week leading to thaw conditions, there is still decent cover on the Top Basin runs and there is still a route to the mid-station.

Up top both the Ciste and Ptarmigan Tow are running, plus the Polar Express Trainer Tow. Uplift for mid-mountain is by the Funicular from the mid-station. Traverse, 105 and Upper Cas still in good condition, but the bottom of the Gunbarrel is now narrowing and requires caution approaching the middle - but gives 1300ft of vertical descent.

Sunday 8th May is the final day of lift served riding for the 2016 Scottish Season, so get up CairnGorm for what is looking like a classic day of Scottish spring snow t-shirt skiing - Munro Level temperature forecast to reach +14°c tomorrow! See you for one last slide.
