It was all time yesterday and fully reset on the mountain after heavy snowfalls all day on Tuesday. Managed to be one of the first down and there were just a handful of us lapping until another 10 or so showed up after half an hour. The snow had settled but was, soft, smooth and very fast. It's been rather cold over the past few days but unfortunately that looks to be ending sometime this morning with highs of 7C expected right up at 1500m...

More of the same warm conditions plus some rain expected Friday before it cools down and snows a little Saturday night. That was forecast to be a solid dump until this morning but was downgraded to just a few cm.

It has been a great March with plenty of cheeky powder days and nobody around, but unless Saturday night surprises to the upside, things could deteriorate quickly.

** Snowfall number recorded this morning is from yesterday morning
