Snow lying to base, but meant very dry light snow which kept moving about in the wind up the mountain.

Machine made snow whales on the link to the Cliffy from the Plateau Cafe / Old Mugs Alley.

Good sledging thanks to the TechnoAlpin T40.

Big drifts along some fencelines and natural snow fields, contrast with heavily scoured mountainside.

Drifted snow at the Top of the Access Chair.

Looking over to the Plateau Poma from the Top of the Chair.

Report
Not quite enough snow for any lift served snowsports as yet but a number of tourers have been out over the weekend. More general thin snow cover on Saturday, but things were significantly more wind affected on Sunday after strong overnight winds.

That made conditions the tourers encountered more variable, but also meant the runs are beginning to fill in.

Good sledging is available by the Plateau Cafe thanks to snow making by the TechnoAlpin T40 and the other gun has put down some whales of machine made snow on the link between Old Mugs Alley, the Plateau Cafe and the Cliffy to provide a base on this often thin but important link.
