Its an overcast morning here today but at least the rain has stopped. Idealy, it fell heaviest during the late afternoon and night. This means the deep persistent slushy layer will have been washed away decreasing stickiness on piste. The forecast suggests we may experience some isolated snow showers about the peaks today but so far none have eventuated.

The best skiing today will be on the upper slopes of the mountain. If you found a good location yesterday head to the same spot as it will likely be the same. The park and pipe will also be worth a look.

We have a real mixed bag looking at the forecast for the next 10 days. Clouds will gradually clear later today and tomorrow will be full bluebird corresponding with warm spring temperatures. Rain is predicted for Sunday turning to snow overnight into Monday. It looks like the freezing level will drop to around 1200m so there will be snow from mid mountain up. From then on we should experience partly cloudy conditions thrown in with the odd snow shower. A cooler system is expected mid next week delivering fresh snow down to about 400m.
