After yesterdays big effort on Macdui in full winter conditions the guys were all up for another big day in The Cairngorms and when  mentioned how wonderful Braeriach is they were soon fired up. We had glorious sunny spells from the word go. There had been fresh snowfall overnight right down to the Sugar Bowl car park and so it was beautiful snow underfoot. The hill was once again very quiet, apart from big groups coming through the Lairig Ghru. Th guys loved the whole day and this was their biggest hill day in Scotland, so far...... ! There is still full cover of snow on the plateau's and ridges, and the temperatures are not getting much higher into next week so looks like May will be winter on the top too!

Great pictures. Looks like a fantastic time was had. Thanks for the updates, this is a really good resource for "eyes on the ground" conditions in addition to all the weather forecasts & MWIS updates. Off to the Lairig Ghru in 11 days time so really good to see recent conditions.
