Glenmore Long Stay Parking

Anyone got experience of overnight parking in Glenmore? We're hoping to dump a car or two for a couple of nights in the area. Ideally I'd like to park at the funicular base station (or as close to it as possible) and/or the Allt Mor Car Park. Does anyone know restrictions prices. At a pinch we could...

I'm planning on going through next weekend, I'd be interested in getting an eyewitness account of accumulated snow in upper reaches of the Lairig Ghru too ... so please keep the reports coming!
