A largely bright and sunny spring day, but a few short decidedly un-spring showers around in the early afternoon with snow/hail in the Top Basin.
All Top Basin Runs are in fantastic shape, though the snow is quite sticky in the Ptarmigan due to the fresh accumulations earlier the week. Ciste Bowl more granular snow and the best surface conditions have been on the Cas with loose fast granular spring snow.
The Piste Bashers and park crew have pulled out all the stops in the park area with 7 rails/boxes, a wall ride, various kickers, mini boarder cross above the Ptarmigan Traverse with various rollers, berms and small kickers and a larger banked course down through the Ciste Bowl.
Complete cover from the Trainer Tow across the bowl, so great conditions for first timers upwards with excellent nursery areas. Marquis Well snowfield is loaded and provides a route for tourers up to the Summit area.
Traverse, 105 and Upper Cas also in good shape. Gunbarrel slightly banked but in decent nick to the M1 load area, but below this it is becoming narrow, but easily skiable to the mid-station giving 1300ft of vertical descent.
