  • Weather Comment: Blue bird stunner, calm and its gonna be warm!
  • Snow Comment: Heaps of snow up high making for very good spring skiing conditions! Have another coffee while the superficial freeze softens and then get after that sweet creamy corn. Temple Basin has some of the best spring skiing with plenty of North/West facing aspects and lots of snow up high - Temple Tow is a little thin in places but definitely still ridable! Fire and Ice is looking to be an epic night - Get up here and soak up some sun before soaking up the splendours of the evening!
  • Track Conditions: Snow from the Twin Creek Bridge.
