Limited Terrain Complete/Open.

:: Weather Conditions
A mixture of sunny spell, snow showers and mist, with a wind blowing from the north that varied in strength. Best visibility was probably around midday.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Fairway had pisted powder that was topped up in the showers. All other areas were unpisted with powder. I reckon a 3-4

The Ciste tow and polar express were running with good tracks, as a result of the shovelling efforts of ski patrol

Freshies to be had in the Ciste bowl although the Northerly wind slowed you down. To the Lady side of the West Wall poma was another good area for freshies.

Four of us explored the Traverse and Cas at the end of the day as an alternative to the funicular although this was not officially open.
Lots of unconsolidated powder on the traverse and upper Cas but sketchy lower down
