Hard pack conditions are generally the picture on the lift accessible terrain. One or so centimetres of very low density snow fell overnight so "dust on crust". the grooming machinery has been doing a fine job at least on the Tsuga Ike Lift Company terrain. More snow is in the forecast over the days after today.

N.B. the lower elevation snow pack is "isothermal", especially on southerly aspects.

Travel Advisory:

Yesterday the air temperature at tree line and above was not observed to rise above 0C {eg. 1245 hrs., 1,990 m a.s.l.: -3.0C} but the sun affected the snow that was exposed to it. The northly exposures are generally still powdery but otherwise, at least to 2,170m a.s.l. {Tengu Para} the snow was so affect to some extent.

The travel/trail breaking is improving. Ski-penetration on February 11th was about 35 cm (anecdotal report of mid-calf ski-penetration at 1,800m a.s.l.). Yesterday the ski-penetration was generally 10 to 20 cm.
