Nice start to the day - then clouded over in the afternoon to a "west coast pea-souper". Before clearing for the last 3 runs of the day.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Excellent cover on the upper runs / wall & canyon.
5/10cm fresh on top of a decent base.

Good day - but overshadowed by Ally P. breaking his leg on very first run of the season... If you reading this then get well soon boyo!

Snowed heavily until 2.30 when it cleared to the summit for half and hour before the cloud dropped down the mountain again. Little wind which contrasted to yesterday
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Conditions generally excellent and improving all the time. Most runs have a firm base with lots of fresh powder on top. The Goose is almost full width with fantastic powder conditions. Summit runs clearly full width and yet more fresh powder. Side Winder and Cats Alley in great nick. Lower down the Fairway and Far West rapidly filling although some rocks still showing in the scoured areas. Possible to ski back to the restaurant via Home run / Rabbit run

Overcast most of the day. Patch sunshine at lunchtime then a nice blizzard came in.

Nice and clear to end the day.

Freezing level jumped up & down a bit. Probably ended up 1/2 way down the chairlift by the end of the day?
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Spent a lot of time in the powder in the wall area, met stevie & friends.

Walked up to the summit at lunchtime where the weather cleared. Views were superb. Met a few folk out touring.(Ridge to criesse didnt have full snow cover so not sure where they went after that)

Weather went a bit arse in the afternoon resulting in a few blind runs through the haggistrap with frozen up goggles.

Queues were a bit mental but great to see it busy, hope theres some press coverage.
