Snow Conditions - Cairngorm
Last updated: 20⁄12⁄2014 at 20:00

Run conditions
The upper bowls are now ready to open with some fantastic cover for this time of year. When the wind eases we hope to operate the Ptarmigan and Ciste tows in addition to the funicular railway. There is some fresh drifting snow on the upper runs. Yesterday's thaw has firmed up the snow across the mountain creating a good base. The Traverse, 105, Coire Cas, and Zig Zags are all providing good skiing The lower slopes are getting patchy as is the bottom of the Home Road.
Vertical Runs 400m
Snow Level Snow covering ground to Aviemore.

News from the slopes

CairnGorm Mountain from the air 9 February 2009

Still too windy for the top lifts so we will be offering snowsports on the Traverse, 105, ZZ's and then the Home Road is the best option back to the Day Lodge. There has been fresh overnight snowfall and drifting which is grooming up well on the marked routes. Good visibility at present, enjoy your day. Ops 1
