Ski Club hut, lower Lady has most snow over to M1 side, t-bar side sheltered from NE wind so has less snow/drifting.

Report
Sunny, calm, good cover higher up with some powder on the Lady. No lifts didn't deter those with touring kit or those boarders prepared to hike for some early turns, and those up on touring kit reported a great day for wandering about without uplift.

Mix of ski tourers, telemarkers, boarders, even some guys kite boarding on the upper M2 and one guy paragliding.

The top half of mid mountain runs have caught a fair cover, but it does thin it out lower down. Top Basin and above has the best cover as there the snow from earlier in the week consolidated a bit mid-week before the fresh snow fell on Wed/Thursday.

No uplift this weekend and unfortunately looking wild for Saturday.
