Some nice fresh tracks to be found if you know where to look

View from the bottom of the hill. Note the burn has mostly been filled and the unusually good coverage on the east wall of the goose

Report
The snow from the last couple of days has really helped the conditions along. Off piste is mostly windpacked but there are still some loose powder stashes to be found if you know where to look.

Some great turns to be had on the east wall of the goose which opens up a large part of the hill that is usually wind scoured. Still one or two rocks to watch out for though.

Middle and lower runs much improved and summit runs in fantastic condition. Easily skiable to the Top of the Gondola. Alpha Run has pisted very well, machine packed powder.

Thanks to Chris H for the photos. Settled and bright / sunny weather forecast for Friday and the weekend with light winds, get up there.
