There was nice blue sky this morning but around 10am it turned into light overcast conditions. The light overcast was most welcome as it cut the direct rays of the sun from attacking the snow pack and the snow has not gone slushy. Skiing is restricted to the Romance #2 chair with 2 runs of approximately 800m each open. It is disappointing that the resort has closed the top chair as the snow up there still looks epic. The golden week crowds have not crowded the slopes with very very few people visible on the slopes today. In fact if you were looking to avoid the crowds then putting in some turns may well be the place to be.
