Yet more snow and powder for the skiers!
"Last Updated on: 11/05/2012 17:44
End of day update... and the snow just keeps coming. We have had over a foot of fresh snow over the last 18 - 24 hrs, and it is still chucking it down!! As a result it is now possible to ski back to the mid platform via first 2 zig zags then on to the gunbarrel section of the Cas track. It is a similar story for the M1 and Lady pistes, although there are still a few rocks lurking, so go with care. Amazing cover in the top bowls, and the team will be in early to get the Shred Park reshaped for the freestylers. The M1 poma should be ready for first thing, after an amazing effort by the engineering team. We intend to run the Ptarmigan, Ciste,Polar and M1 lifts, with the train doing middle upstops. We may run the Cas from the gunbarrel if the demand warrants it.
Who knows if it keeps snowing there could be top to bottom riding available!
Facillities opening from 8.30am and first train at 9.00am.
The Head Wall still has an Avalanche Warning set in place, and Avalanches have occured during this week......"
