Snow comment:

OPEN - Spring skiing continues with a dusting of snow overnight. Pack some scroggin and make a day of it!

The forecast is for more snow on Wednesday and a powder day on Thursday; Possibly the last powder day before hanging up the skis for summer! BR closing day is this Sunday, October 9th. A hand full of beds are available for Wednesday night, so get in quick.

Some solid shovelling efforts have made the Access Tow line a little less adventurous but still sporty. There's a Himalayan fixed rope on the lookers left of the Access Tow for those who prefer to walk to Palmer Lodge/The main basin.

Tyndall tramway is in its final stages of repair. Allow extra time for the walk up the track from Hanomag car park. The Dickson gear shuttle will be operating from 9:30-10:30 and again at 5pm.
