Average depth: 100cm (50cm-150cm)

Last snowfall: 15cm on 20 August

After yesterday's howling winds and blowing snowfall, today looks to be much calmer and more enjoyable. Visibility should be vastly improved and the field has hopefully benefited from the snowfall coupled with our prevailing west winds to buff out and refresh conditions. Come on up and enjoy what should be some nice turns and increasingly solid coverage. Fine weather mixed with the occasional low cloud and low winds today is forecast to give way to some more small snow amounts this evening. Ridge Tow and Allan's Basin will initially be on hold status pending a pulley repair on Ridge. Gear shuttle update: Unfortunately today we will not have a gear shuttle available. We had significant drifting over the road and a hard freeze down low, so we cannot get our truck - or bulldozer for that matter - down or up the road.
