Great ski-touring and piste skiing here on Cairngorm

Well, the photo's speak for themselves and as you can see the sking is pretty amazing for April in the Grampian mountain range, Cairngorm Mountain, Aviemore, Scotland!
Climbing wise you can see that the crags are plastered and there was an avalanche on Hells Lum today...there is a lot of graupel in the snow pack. It's clear skyes at night and temperatures get very warm through the day. Steep and convex sun exposed slopes are risky.
