Conditions and Lifts (Alpine Enterprises) – On the mountain this morning we have blue skies poking thru, mod winds and +1.5 degrees. Operating today we will have Bass and village from 9 then Summit hopefully late morning. As a possibility even Fannie’s this afternoon, but with heaps of track work to do there no promises as yet. For those planning for the weekend the hope is for 4-5 lifts which would include Bills for Saturday and Sunday. A fair cover in front and as always better over back.
ROAD CONDITIONS –Please be advised that 2WD vehicles may have to fit chains due to icy conditions this morningwill have to fit chains, Jacobs ladder has between 2-5 cm of soft fresh snow but not enough to call the grader to clear the road. If you are driving a car you not only need to have chains, you need to know how to fit them and how to drive your car whist they are on. For more information on chains visit the snowsafe website
