:: Snow Conditions & Info
Superb spring snow. Probably one of my most enjoyable days skiing this year. Very forgiving snow. The day started well and just got better and better. the snow never got mushy or too soft. We were essentially skiing on the melting neve layer which makes up the Raise glacier this year. Only Savages and the bottom of the presidents was skiable and only from P4 but dont be decieved by the lack of cover. The depth is still in excess of 3m at the bottom and the skiing surface was superb. Tomorrow may be the last day the tow runs this year however ? ..... but what season over 40 days !
