/ is there snow down to the Glenmore Lodge
Any help appreciated.
There's no snow down to Glenmore lodge now. We were at Cairngorm on Saturday and a few nutters were combat skiing back to the main car park but we walked from the mid station.
Looking at the webcam pics: http://www.winterhighland.info/cams/cairngorm-mountain/ you'll probably need to walk to at least the mid station before you'll be able to link significant patches without having keep walking sections. The plateau had good cover on Saturday.
Best May skiing I can remember in a lot of years.
I'm just boring...after the second nasty noise from the base of my skis I decided that walking was a better plan and would require less p-tex.
Saturday was rather good though. Fresh tracks over the back and down from the summit :-)
