Started off miserable and rainy but cleared up to leave a dry day with sunny spells.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
A good ski to end the season, classic spring snow with most upper runs complete. Also possible to get to the base of Cliffy though it does involve grass skiing. Sad to see the season end but at least we had a good one!

Overcast but bright with sunny spells in the afternoon. A nice spring day!
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Great cover in the main natural gullies on the mid and upper mountain. Nice soft and quick spring snow across the open terrain. Watch out for the snow bridges and holes lower down!
Wall T-Bar operated am, closed pm due to breaking uptrack.
Short walk across the plateau serves as a nice warm up!
All credit to the Coe for staying open - they were rewarded for their efforts as it was quite busy! A great day to finish on, but we hope to return for Midsummer skiing in June!

Sunny, nice weather and dry except from an odd hint of snow after lunch. Got pretty warm in the afternoon - warm enough for t-shirt skiing
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Fresh snow overnight improved the conditions although the off piste was baseless and you had a reasonable chance of hitting a rock. Possible to ski the Plateau runs although they were combat. A great day of spring skiing.

Mainly sunny but some light snow showers bubbling up in the afternoon. Felt warm and above freezing in the sun but temperature dropped significantly during showers. The cosmetic snow on the mid mountain was melting but there wasn't much if any up in the Main Basin
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Snow cover improved for the most part last weekend except from on the Plateau where now only the Poma uptrack and Old Mugs Alley are complete. The snow was a mix of fresh, spring snow and some firmer areas. Best snow was on the upper mountain.

:: Weather Conditions
Clear weather conditions dominated through most of the day, with the occasional light snow shower closing in from the West, but visibility was always excellent. The showers eventually burned off at the end of the day, raising the temperature from just below freezing in the morning to 4-5 degrees by the afternoon.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Snow cover was generally fantastic. The upper mountain was loaded with a mix of fresh skier-packed snow higher up and soft granular snow lower down. Happy Valley was by far the pick of the day with skier-packed powder on a firm base. Main Basin was also good, but less packed and rather hard on the knees on the way down. Spring Run was soft and fully loaded, though heavy in the bowl. Mugs Alley was mostly full-width, but the snow was also somewhat heavy and sticky with the occasional unexpected hole. Plateau run was just about passable until the last 50m, but very heavy and wet with narrow sections.
