With over 20 centimeters of new snow this past week,... you have the perfect excuse to get an early start to your weekend. Cool overnight temperatures have kept the surface snow dry and fresh, and untracked terrain remains to be found throughout the two basins. Gear shuttle update: due to popular demand, our gear shuttle will be running from Hanomag car park for the next two weeks. Shuttle leaves at 9:30 AM so if you arrive early please note that your gear will arrive at the huts around 10:00 AM. See you up here!
