Last patch of snow in the Ptarmigan Bowl makes it into July.

Looking over Fiacaill a' Choire Chais to the Fiacaill Buttress, various snow patches.

Newly double fenced mid section of the Fiacaill Ridge Poma track from the Traverse.

Looking up Coire na Ciste early on Monday morning.

Newly redecked Cas loading gantry, complete with new lift shack. But where is the window for the webcam?

Bundles of new snow fencing for the West Wall Poma wait to be taken up Coire na Ciste.

Concrete base of the Ptarmigan Tow drive has been getting refurbished.

Most of the main Ciste Mhearaidh snow patch. Extends slightly off to the left.

Helen gets some July turns in on CairnGorm Mountain....

...the uplift was a bit primitive though !!

Joining the 21 months club in July.

Helen sets off for another run at the Eastern edge of the snow field.

Report
One of the warmest weekends of the year and the fine weather held into Monday, giving a cracking summer's day on the 'Gorm. The SE breeze blowing off the Plateau providing some pleasant cooling on the hike up from the Cas Carpark.

A mix of photos from the high level snow patches, and of some summer maintenance work ongoing around the mountain.

Soft granular spring snow in the Ciste Mhearaidh, gave short but pleasant runs for the July turns. The turns that have allowed Alan and Helen (H11lly) to notch up their 21st consecutive month of sliding on CairnGorm Mountain, since the epic 2010 season kicked off in November 2009.

August turns and month 22? A watchful eye will be kept on the Ciste Mhearaidh through July....
