Last snowfall

Yesterday it finally turned cold and we received 5cm of snow across the mountain. The trails have held up remarkably well to the unseasonably warm past few days. All maintrails have been groomed overnight and snowmaking is in progress. West-bowl access tow is ON HOLD today. ALL mountain facilities are operating, this includes Snowschool, Rentals, Café, and Shuttle service from the bottom carpark.
