It was a cloudy but dry day on the hill.

Overnight light snowfall with some drifting has led to new shallow snow cover developing on Southerly aspects. A few skiers were out and about using local knowledge to get the best out of these areas. Its building nicely but probably best not use the new ski’s just yet!


Occasionally there were some views. Thin soft cover from low levels but hard and icy where older snow is exposed to the winds.


New accumulations developing, mostly SE and S aspects, only achieving depth in steep lee locations.
