Went skiing in the west nile area, planning to look at grand daddy. Turned around before fan due to poor visibility, strong snowfall and strong wind. Alpine beginning to develop wind slabs, skiing in the slide path below treeline was quite good until lower down. Snow started somewhat wet at about 6am and become dryer throughout the morning.
