A murky cold start to the day then the sun came out about lunch time with a little bit of wind chill.
The snow pack has changed now as it is getting skied on more. It is firming up, not ice but getting slicker in places, I slipped a couple of times on the way down the lady.
The off piste is no longer powder, a bit lumpy where it has been chopped up by traffic, still fun if a wee bit harder going.
The boys have been working very hard getting things ready for the weekend. The lower slopes and tow tracks have been pisted including the Fiacaill ridge poma. The M2 and day lodge runs were very nice, even the glades to the side of the day lodge were very skiable. The new M2 fencing is twice as wide as before, pity they did not have time to continue it all the way down, may be next year? The new style fencing really makes a big difference.
When I was heading home down the M2 I saw the machine over at the WWP and it had already pisted over yonder.
The cas tow track look ready now and the bars were being fitted today. I don't want to jinx it but it looks like they could have everything open for the weekend, I think they will need it!!
Update 19:13 snowing big flakes in the village now.
