:: Snow Cover
Excellent Cover
:: Surface Conditions (out of 5)
:: Weather Conditions
Sunny with a bit of cloud at times with a light to moderate breeze giving a little chill at times. At mid mountain there was very light drizzle at times turning to snow about 2 thirds of the up the Main Basin. Temp at the summit was only about +1 or +2 whereas at the base it might have peaked at around +10 ish.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Great cover on all runs with nice soft spring snow giving good routes all around the mountain. The snow is a lot less sticky than yesterday but it is still a little bit sticky on some runs although by the end of the day it had morphed into nice spring snow. All lifts were running except from Rannoch Button although it probably needed to at times. All the runs are in great shape for April including the Plateau runs which at the moment are showing no sign of thin areas yet. It is probably safe to say that the snow will last until the end of the Easter holidays so there isn't that much of a rush to get up there but get up whilst it is still great.
