Report
A dusting of fresh snow overnight give a light covering on a firm base to start of Tuesday. Gradually the cloud base lifted further up the hill with spells clear to the top. Late in the day the clouds broke more widely with sunny spells, hopefully more to come of that tomorrow.

The upper mountain runs are complete and in good shape for more experienced riders. Snow softened up during the morning, became slightly sticky for a time, then crunched up later to give fast crunchy spring snow which was lovely to ski on, so should be set up nicely for mid-week. Spring Run was fantastic in the afternoon.

Mugs Alley, the Wall and Thrombosis are complete, some narrow and thin bits lower down. However the links back into both the Cliffhanger Chair and Wall T-bar are complete and pisted. Wall good fun when it's softened up.

Plateau Poma uptrack is complete for access to and from the main area.
