Another fine day here today. While it clouded over and started snowing mid-afternoon here yesterday, high winds seem to have carried most of the snow away. At 47, Route 5 is closed in readiness for more boarder-cross, and the quad is moving very slowly due to the winds. Over at Goryu conditions on the upper Alpen slopes are excellent, with the wind continuously depositing just enough of yesterday's snow on the wide groomer up there to keep it fresh and easily carvable. Conditions deteriorate towards the bottom of the mountain and the wide Toomi area is already very slushy from the zigzag "Woody" course downwards. With 47 facing north, thankfully only the final 150 meters or so of Route 1 are in the same state.

With the three-day weekend approaching, there are no signs of snow on the horizon. Pack the sun cream and get as high as you can for good conditions.
