Last snowfall

What a start to spring! Overnight we received yet another 5-10cm of snow, this is still a little wet and heavy at the bottom of the mountain but lighter than yesterday and sure to provide nice ski conditions. All main trails have been groomed. Off piste you will find fresh powder but as there are many unmarked natural hazards please take extra caution. West-bowl access tow is ON HOLD today. ALL other mountain facilities are operating, this includes the Community Park, Snowschool, Rentals, Café, and Shuttle service from the bottom carpark.
