Snow conditions; Maintrails have been groomed overnight to corduroy perfection with an excellent packed powder surface, while off piste still provides great skiing and riding, but please beware hazards still exist so please ski and ride with care. The platter and learners slopes are also serving up great skiing and riding conditions. ALL other mountain facilities are operating, this includes Snowschool, Rentals, Café, and Shuttle service from the bottom carpark.
