Mixed bag the photos sum it up. Drizle at the top of the gondola mid morning. Temps at the Gondola dropped during the afternoon with the snow going granular. Below freezing by 4pm. Snow, cloud, sun and spindrift in rotation up top.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Runs had good to great cover, conditions improving up the mountain. Morning was damp snow on lowest slopes but this had gone granular by late afternoon. Very occaisional ice patches away from pisted areas below about the double tower level on Warrens.

Mainly skied off summit button and goose. Goose Gully in great condition. Summit in great condition. Cats Alley / Cat Track and Duncans Drop all pisted up nicely. Had a run down switch and then tow line skiers left on Warrens OK but flight and E of flight might have been the better run going of the traffic. Unfortunately I ran out of time so cant say more than that.

Nid Wall / Ridge looked to have good cover, there is a nearly continous snow field running west across the face of the mountain from Nid Ridge. Bit of a boulder field running from the upper travers but then continous cover right round the Goose to the lifts. Didnt see anyone ski that area.
