The Red Access Run is skiable to the top of the Carpark, top half has good base, big drifts middle third, then thin but doable.

Messing around on the snow covered dry slope at the base Cafe at 1200ft.

The Wall is absolutely loaded, who'll get first tracks on Thursday?

Digging out Ski Tow Gully to lower the snow to a safe clearance below the rope/towers of the Main Basin T-bar.

Huge amounts of snow has drifted in to the mid-mountain, Canyon almost filled flat.

Clearing snow from the door of the Plateau Cafe.

The strong gusty wind eased a bit then came back stronger on Wednesday morning, with blizzard conditions during the snow showers and continued heavy drifting. Unfortunately the wind was too gusty to open, but staff did manage to get up on the mountain and the Wall and Plateau Poma were ready to go.

The Main Basin is likely to need some further work in the morning due to the continued heavy drifting tonight, but with the mid mountain absolutely loaded and fresh tracks to be had to the Carpark on the Red Access Run by the fence that's 1600ft of vertical to play on before the Main Basin T-bar opens up the full 2400ft of vertical. We are in the middle month of Spring, so this might be the last chance for Summit to moor riding, so come and get it!

The Wall is loaded, Thrombosis gully is filled flat, the Haggis Trap hasn't been seen for months, but all these are out done by the Canyon which is astonishingly loaded and close to being flat itself! There is a crescent drift that forms a curved natural quarter pipe lip so it should be a blast for advanced skiers and boarders.
