A largely overcast and misty day with some showers with a few brighter spells, so the bright sun going up the Funicular for the first time was a bit of a false dawn weatherwise.
The best cover is in the Top Basin where all runs are complete with generally reasonable width, but the snow is soft and wet. Surface conditions improve further down on to the middle slopes though the cover gets narrower. The Traverse has good cover, but the 105 is getting thin and the Upper Cas is complete but narrow with loose granular snow. The best snow by far was on the White Lady – good granular spring snow, fairly quick and very easy to ski on, but the runs is starting to break in a couple of places, but it was still just possible for experts to ski top to mid-station by the Lady without having to unclip till below the bottom of the M1 Poma.
A slow but steady thaw has continued day and night, the M1 is broken and any attempted descent of the Gunbarrel will likely be eventful shall we say. Photos by Winterhighland, additional photos from H11lly. Please send your photos to email@example.com .
