Windy start to the day with lots of snow getting blown about although it gradually decreased. Overhead conditions were excellent, with great visibility
:: Snow Conditions & Info
M1 and M1 sidetrack were pisted, Whitelady had one machine width pisted down by the funicular fences, with generally very nice wind packed powdery snow. The Traverse, 105, Cas and Gunbarrel were all in good condition with nice pisted wind blown snow. Burnside was the best route down to the base station, and the fiacail poma providing fast access to the middle mountain aswell as the odd off piste powder stash.

Near the end of the day we went down the M2 which was pisted full width to the end of the daylodge poma, it got patchy after this, but still do-able. The burn was showing through in a few spots in the Ciste gulley, and the wire was off the west wall poma. The top bowl was nicely filled although all tows were closed.
