Great Conditions

29th April 2016

Despite there having been snow showers in the forecast for most of the last week the only significant accumulations were yesterday. The old snowpack is frozen hard giving generally good climbing conditions and in areas where recent snow has accumulated there are good skiing conditions too. Make the most of it tomorrow as the weather forecast is taking a turn for the worse on Sunday.

A break in the cloud this morning.
