A brilliant day, enjoyed by a big crowd. Car park had at least 40 vehicles by midday.
An overnight frost and a dusting of fresh snow, replenished again at midday, improved conditions for Sunday. There was good skiing almost everywhere, though Range Way and Short Cut are wearing thin. By mid-afternoon the popular trails were smooth and much faster as temperatures dropped. Skiers on Leids Leap should beware of maintenance vehicle tracks on the mid and lower sections of the route, but the middle of trail is smooth and skiable for those who can cope with speed! It should remain cold for the week ahead, giving continued skiing opportunities, but more snow is needed to forestall a slow decline in conditions.
