Report
The weather continued in the same vein as the weekend for Monday, no doubt the blue sky adding to the Monday blues for those webcam watching from work!

Today's mission was to complete the re-installation of the Summit Camera after a spot of technical difficulty with a camera that only on wanted to upload what looked like a white-out on a bluebird day during the weekend.

A new Summit AWS has also been installed, providing wind speed and temperature every 5 minutes from the Top of the Main Basin T-bar, just below the summit itself.

On the slopes great granular spring snow on the upper Mountain and it is still possible to ski the full length of the Spring Run down to the Cliffhanger Chair. The traverse off the Spring Run back to the Top Tows is in good nick and the Top Button can run if demand.

Plateau Poma uptrack is complete for access to/from the main area and when the inevitable happens as we go through spring there is a Landrover now in place to provide the 'Plateau taxi' service from the top of the Access to the Cliffhanger Chair.

More photos from other parts of the mountain in Sunday's Pix from the Slopes.

Slightly cooler weather, but still lots of sunshine in the coming days, excellent and queue free riding to be had. Grab a day of spring sliding, you wont regret it.
