Overnight itandnbsp;was very chilly with a low of -2.9 degrees which was great for our snowmaking team to get out there and blast those snow guns. Today we're heading for a partly cloudy top of 2 degrees with light winds and there's also a chance we may see some snow showers later in the afternoon.andnbsp;

Looking ahead there's snow on the forecast for Thursday and Friday with the temperatures set to drop.andnbsp;

Skiing & Boarding

With 2cm of new snow on the runs skiers and snowboarders are going to find good to very good conditions in open areas. Thereandrsquo;s a light dusting across the runs on aandnbsp;firmandnbsp;packed base, so if you're after some hard and fast turns make sure you head out early!

Our grooming team hasandnbsp;worked into the early hours of the morning so there's plenty of fresh corduroy to be carved and the runs are in tip top shape. If you're up for theandnbsp;challenge of a more advanced run, Ski Patrol's Pick of the Day is Men's Downhill otherwise there's plenty of fun turns to be had down Little Buller Spur.andnbsp;

DbSki: Anyone know if you can top up BTag on the morning of day its used, like at 4AM I've only done it night before in the past. Rather wait till I get up then to commit.
Yep, no problem. I've done it on my phone while standing in the insufferably slow line at the Northside ticket office. just make sure you've got your correct email and password remembered for log in to your account.

CarveMan: I doubt very much if lower Wombat bowl will be open apart from perhaps Outer Edge as that's less rocky and somewhat summer groomed. But when Bull Run is open wall to wall who cares about Wombat Bowl??
Lower Wombat Bowl has been closed by the Ski Patrol, could be skiable. My vote is for Bull Run though.

Vermillion: Very very unlikely IMO.
A couple weeks ago I had a play in Robins/PK with - was quite doable to the first track, but down lower was a way off. Any feedback from the last couple of days ?

travelislife: Highly doubt it. Wasn't on the weekend. Not even Fed bowl was open below the cat track. And Federation chair is still closed, so the bottom half of Fed bowl still isn't open. Does anyone know if Fed has opened at all this year?
A couple of times but just Whiskey Creek Trail. Haven't skied Bottom of Federation for several years. Climate Change.
