06 May 2012: Skiing on the plateau, Cairngorm. Skiing Spring 2012

Another glorious day, and it felt quite pleasant in the campsite in the morning.  We decided to go for the shortest route to the snow, so it was a repeat of the previous Saturday and a skin up the Fiacaill Ridge onto the plateau.  The rest of the day was spent having runs down into Coire Raibert, Coire Domhain and the Feith Buidhe (which was fantastic).  Alan squeezed in some extra runs while we enjoyed a bit of occasional sunbathing.  Our return trip saw another descent into Coire Raibert, this time from the top of Stob Coire an t-Sneachda, and then the final pull up onto Cairngorm.  The snow was firming up again, but we still had a good run down into Coire Cas, with only a short walk from the bottom of the "Gunbarrel" back to the car.  Another great couple of days, and it looks like there's more snow on the way!

It was good, so we sneaked an extra run in.
