April 4,, 2021 at 9:40 am.

Kenny has returned from touring the trails and the trails are not in very good condition. The Fox Trot and Percy’s Path can still be skied but there is some ground showing on the turns on Percy’s Path. You can still ski the section from the Fox Trot turn off to the end of Jack’s Woods. Some wet sections at the entrance to the Snowy Owl. Snowy Owl is closed. The Trail is fine into Braveheart where there is one wet section about 1000 meters in. The remainder of Braveheart is good. There is still flooding at the Witches Broom so if anyone skies in that area they will have to back track and return. The area below the old gizabo is also wet.

Anybody skiing today will have to exercise caution in any of those areas.
