0.5c at 740m. Snow frozen all day. light easterly breeze, brighter spells in the morning but mainly overcast. Good visibility.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Presidents and Savages both have good cover though narrower at the top in several palces. Way out west skiable but re frozen crust was not pleasant. Presidents got better during the day with the light traffic smoothing the surface nicely. Good skiing by the end of the day. Should be good right from the start tomorrow. Thursdays snow had filled in the runs again and the trenches dug out for the Pomas. Still too much snow to enable lift loadingfrom the normal uphill side. Downhill side for loading only. The underlying snow is now rock hard and up to 3m deep in places. The season goes on.......

Wet! Freezing level probably above 900m. About plus 2 at 720m. Strengthening aw wind very strong by 3pm. There was a lull in the rain around mid day but very wet and windy on the walk down at 4pm. Visibility most ok.
:: Snow Conditions & Info
Just the main runs cpmplete but fence to fence cover and deep. Buried fences top and bottom. Bottom hut partially buried. Ironically the powder room has been a good luck cha since it was built 3 years ago. Once again it is totally buried. The already good cover from last week was added to substantially on Monday with over 6 feet of snow at the bottom. The skiing surface was excellent compacted wet snow that took an edge beautifully. Excellent work by Stuart and James to get the tow going again after a fairly dramatic derailment which shifted the pylon arm around as designed. See picture. Thanks to everyone who helped out.

Fence to fence deep cover on savages and presidents.... But hardly anywhere else. The folk who laid out the tow we're not and women of vision! A new fall of snow yesterday had freshened the surface up nicely. The base was not frozen solid and conditions improved during the day. A really nice days skiing.
