Weather Information

Some patchy cloud again today with the chance of some dusting flurries, breaking up at times for increased sunny periods.
A light inversion this morning should flip back around lunchtime as a slight rise on the upper mountain is eclipsed by lower mountain temperatures rising into minus single figures. The air is like a dozing dog lately - it'll raise an eye as you pass by, but is quite content to lay peacefully in place.

Snow Information

Nice grippy groom on most of the regulars yesterday morning, with light traffic enjoying cutting arcs to make their mark.
Sunset had some mid sized bumps, soft packed with just a few signs of wear appearing in the odd trough. Marker's Mark has been shaped out nice and wide for a sweeping descent on the empty run. McIntosh Way has been keeping pretty well generally, benefitting from last seasons upper addition. Divert onto Stroblestrasse today and catch groomed natural snow.
Some good, packed bumps will keep the pistons pumping and the heart rate up at working level, when taking Tacky top to bottom. Well sized, with the odd change up in shape, just to make sure you're paying attention!
A braintrust hike to Stash found some barely tracked, softer wind pack remaining after the weekend that was worth the walk! Under the rock band had a light crust where the thicker crud crumping skis were an asset. Easier going once rejoining the more packed snow a little lower down.
On a day when Aussies commemorate the historical travel across the seas, a shout out to those that are missing joining us this season. I trust you've had a 'cold one' as a reminder!

SNOW REPORTER BIOGRAPHY - EVAN PACEY

About Snow Report Evan 2

The Wandering Wordsmith is back for a ninth season at the helm. The daily 5AM alarm is set and he’s armed with a figurative pen that he is not afraid to literally wield! Meet your Snow Reporter;

You might spy him in varied environments -  teaching skiing and boarding with the Ski & Ride Centre, exploring adaptive technique with PASS, racing about with the kids of WVSC, or perhaps just out sampling the product - “always working” of course!

When not actively sliding, he adheres to the tenet that process makes progress: he'll pore over analytical tools each morning, check in on what the grooming crew get up to overnight, tap into the wealth of knowledge and wisdom from the Panorama Avalanche Office, not to mention taking heed of the intel from the collective braintrust (a.k.a. 'snow mafioso' when they warn against revealing their stash!)

With origins and influences from around the world and ambiguously identifying as a Britstraladian, he’s been hanging out here long enough to become furniture. Riding both the well groomed and rough diamonds, be it on skis or board, he knows the journey is the true reward. With the thought that invention is better than demure, he rewrites some classics, pontificates over precipitate and often makes time to rhyme, hoping to provide a feast of words for your consumption!

With the able assistance of the Countess of Accumulation on backup, our aim is to explain and infotain. Now as the old tune goes: Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
