Took a wander up Cairngorm yesterday. Not as hot as it has been but just as well as it was quite an effort heading up the windy ridge path with all our kit in the broken but strong sunshine. Still warm enough for shorts and t-shirts.
Ciste Mhearad still has a significant snow patch giving a good length of run. The snow was soft and fast, fun for a few runs before the midges found us and had their lunch. Looking over to Coire an Lochan there has been quite a bit of snow loss so I don't think I will be doing that again this year.
The Ptarmigan and half pipe patches are just that, I am sure Helen would get two turns out of them but we did not give them a go.
There is a lot of activity around the centre. Work has started on the new Sheiling lift and the cas is getting a new cable channel up the tow path. Ther are two motors in the car park for the westwall and M1 pomas and drums of cable. The M2 fencing is being dismantled and there are new post on pallets which I assume are the replacements. The day lodge has had new signs.
Still room for a few turns
Shorts and t-shirt idle midge food.
two of these in the car park for WW and M1
