Current Conditions

Well sunshine led from the get go and won the race yesterday, as the clouds stayed away to the south and east of us. The bright blue sky offered a classic panoramic day from the summit, providing the surrounding peaks with a sharply contrasted backdrop. Good snow in the shaded areas up top, with Taynton still giving lovely soft pack turns and pockets of settled powder through the middle drainage. Soft pack snow among the trees of the upper Zone, with less traffic through skiers left glades. Good AM turns on the groom of Outrider, and nice natural snow through Strobl Strasse.

Looking at similar conditions today, with a cooler start until the sun kicks in around 10AM and lays down some rays. Trace amounts of snow fell in the early morning, and with cloud expected to increase into the afternoon, there is the off chance of a bit more around close of play today. Groomers are likely best in the morning, and the upper mountain continues to hold the best of off piste conditions. Forecasts show a system moving through for Saturday afternoon into Sunday, so we’ll be watching for this to bring in more snow…

Please be aware that with all the recent snowfall, tree wells have started to form as soft and deep untracked snow around tree bases gives way easily. Please ski and ride with care and inform children who venture into tight spaces off of groomed runs.

The Discovery Quad is awaiting parts for maintenance and will remain closed until further notice. All associated terrain remains open.

Snow Reporter Biography - Evan Pacey

an image

The wandering wordsmith is back for another season of masochistic 5:30 AM starts – he may have made his bed, but it seems he is unable to lie in it! Here is his bio:

A transplanted Aussie via the UK, he can still be heard lamenting that with his accent, he used to be special around here! Having been on the mountain more winter’s than not over the last decade and a half, he’s seen the constant evolution that is Panorama, and still finds plenty to turn his head amongst the massive variety of terrain.

Enjoying the easy option of chairlifts up and gravity feeding down on either one or two planks, Evan spends the majority of his winter on the mountain. Be it teaching with the Ski & Ride Centre, volunteering adaptive technique with PASS, or simply making tracks for the pure joy of it, he’s rarely off snow for any great length of time. (That said, he can often be found perking up on a Lusti’s coffee, or regaling in the T-Bar after the odd social lubricant – we all know what happens with all work and no play!)

Working in conjunction with the Panorama Avalanche Office, and with backup provided by the Countess of Accumulation, he intends to infotain you throughout the season, direct you to the well groomed and the rough diamonds alike, and provide the interpretations that are the stories behind the figures. Now buckle up, strap in and ride off into the sunset……..

so, what are you waiting for?
