Fresh snow and lots of it!

I had a good day on Cairngorm today and was on the hill with Kathy of SAIS fame and some other friends. Members of Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team (CMRT) were out braving the elements too as were many skiers and a few climbers. The weather was a bit miserable though ( character building one could call it!) with lots of fresh snow, especially above 800 metres with drifting. Cairngorm Mountain has good fresh snow on compacted runs although the wind exposed uplifts were closed today. Some lower runs closer to the car park have narrowed a bit. Many snow fences are still buried , the piste machine drivers are very busy and all in all the skiing will be superb.
