Report
CairnGorm Mountain hopes to offer one more day of limited lift served sliding to round off the 2012 season on Saturday 26th May. Terrain Park Jam 11-2pm on the Ciste Fairway.

Bring your shades, suncream, waterwings and a sense of humour for one last slide before the Gorm's truly bizarre 2012 season finally ends in a heat haze. The plan is to operate the Ciste Tow loading half way to serve the Ciste Fairway.

It's narrowing but most of it had a couple of feet + snow so will hopefully be OK through the night, but check the official reports in the morning. Daylodge open from 8.45am with first train up scheduled for 9am.

There is a flat box, a flat-down box and a couple of short rails, plus several small kickers on the Ciste Fairway, also an unintentional waterslide feature down the burn at the side of the Ciste Fairway!

CairnGorm is also offering the opportunity to try out something different this weekend. The Walk @ the Top resumes on Saturday and snowshoes will be provided for participants this weekend (and as long as the majority of the Marquis Well and Summit Path remain under snow).
