Although Cairngorm summit temperatures were over plus 5 degrees today the snowpack on Northerly aspects is becoming nice and firm again, which is good news for the climbing as most of the easy gully lines are complete. Ice is beginning to re-form again too. On the sunny side of the slopes on plateau areas there are some nice large patches of spring snow to ski on, definatly worth the effort. The forecast out look is for high pressure to dominate for a few more days, enjoy it while it lasts.
