I took a wander up to see what the snow situation was like on Cairngorm and to see if there was any glimmer of hope of any lifts opening in the next day or so.
A word of warning...dont read this post if you are a keen/optimistic sort of person who believes that a potential opening is just round the corner at Cairngorm.
Although the forecast is promising for the next day or so with snow forecast,especially higher up, winds are likely to be very high.
Upper Cas....the picture says it all....
A bare looking Ptarmigan with large areas of water ice which the drifting snow was not sticking to very well.
The annoying flat bit on the Traverse
On a more optimistic note ....further up the Traverse..it does become skiable
And this extends upwards right up to the Top Station
The Traverse looking down
