Returned to UK yesterday, but Nursery slopes were open. There were icy patches due to melting snow during day and freezing at nights. Lessons were continuing but there was a real need for new snow. I was told there was fresh snow at the top, but still lots of ice.
Just finished first day skiing was really worried coming out but it's absolutely fine . Not as good as last year but some cannons are working overtime and they are putting slot of effort in grooming the slopes. Still great for beginners and intermediate level skiers
I'm up the top of the gondola as I write this. Bare patches abound and what covering there is is rock hard. It's ok if you're and accomplished skier/boarder but for the likes of me, beginner/intermediate it's a struggle.
