Flat light and snowing pretty much constantly until the end of the day when it finally brightened up. Poor Visibility
:: Snow Conditions & Info
"Wow!" sums up today in a nutshell. Average snowfall overnight was a good foot and you can multiply that by several for some of the large drifts. All runs much improved though some were hard to ski as you couldn't see where you were going and the snow was so deep that unless you had extremely wide skis but even they got a bit stuck. Get up and play in the freshies now and as Iron Maiden would say run to the hills

Nice surface today with slopes catching regular windblown fresh. Best run was hard to decide as they were all great... M2, Ciste Gully both superb...

Mostly bluebird morning with clouds coming in during the afternoon.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
A great day on the hill with great cover considering it's now the 32nd of March(see cairngorm Facebook about that one!) By far the best snow was on the East Wall in the Ciste- oodles of snow and they are pisting areas that have not been done in a long while. Great snow throughout so get up there now. Terrain park also fun and we got some great acton shots. Nice to meet Windymiller on the hill today

Cloudy with ocasional sunny intervals also with some very small snow showers. Today there was fresh to strong south westerly winds blowing around 30mph causing drifting on pretty much all runs. Was a bit unpleasant last thing with the strong winds and drifting
:: Snow Conditions & Info
All lifts open except sheiling and daylodge in the morning before they opened around lunchtime giving even more access to other runs. Due to the wind some of the runs and uptracks had big drifts making some of them a bit bumpy in places. Lowers slopes are in good shape although being thin in places whereas on the upper slopes there were a couple of scoured and icy patches butthe scouring wasn't too bad. Skied to the Ciste Carpark which was decent. Minimal queues with ride straight on at the Daylodge,West Wall and the FRP. Roads closed overnight. Great Sliding

Generally a bit overcast with occasional sunny spells. A bit of a headwind at the top, especially on the traverse but once on the lower slopes pretty sheltered. At the Day Lodge it was raining at the time I left, mid afternoon but snowing higher up.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
I didn't ski the entire open terrain, just the White Lady, M1 and Gunbarrel. I skied down to the Day Lodge and the snow was good. On the White Lady, good cover with the occasional stones and the odd rock but nothing serious. The snow was firm but not hard or icy. Good skiing overall. When I left around 3, the signs said that the West Wall Poma was opening. Queues were non-existant or minimal and overall a good days skiing.
