Snow is settling out making travel much easier and the skiing much more fun. Lots of smiles and friendly faces out and about! At 1200m on a S aspect we found 85cm dry snow with 3-5mm surface hoar in sheltered locations. 15cm from the ground the old snow with a 1cm ice crust. Snow below the crust was faceting. Temp at TL was -7, winds moderate from the SE with plumes of snow blowing on alpine ridges. Sky was clear. No evidence of avalanche activity on any slopes visible from the Ski Hill.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Windy, Sunny. We rode: Mellow slopes, Sunny slopes. Riding quality was good.
