:: Snow Conditions & Info
The 31st and probably last day of the tow running during the 2016 season was a bonus day after we thought the season had finished.
Snow depth varied from scoured (rocks) to 1m+ drifts. Drifts near the top of the tow required some digging to form a trench for the down-going hangers.
First thing: full cover, wet powder, good skiing. The snow got slower and scarcer as the day progressed, ending better as spring snow developed. Way out west wnet from full cover to 50/50 snow/grass lower down but was still fun.
Some members skied Helvellyn headwall on the way to the apres-ski at the Traveller's Rest.
