The alpine riding areas have received a sick new dose of snow over the last few days and the alpine riding is superb.
Up to 40cms has fallen so far and winds have moved it around a bit so if you find nice sheltered, lee location, it’s all-time epic.
Temperatures have really skyrocketed and we have had small spells of rain to 1350m, but the snow is nice and cold in the alpine areas. The lower access trails will be feeling the wrath of these warms temperatures and small rain spells, although they should quickly improve as you gain elevation.
Enjoy this new snow but respect the new load and the weaknesses that it is sitting on. Keep it low or no angle for a while and just enjoy the DEEP.
