Mt Olympus

show full reporthide full reportUpdated: 7:05am Wednesday 19 Sep 2018 - Spring snow conditions, a bit firm in the morning but softening... during the day. Run of the morning is the Backrun, Parsons is the run of the afternoon. Come on up and enjoy a cracker of a warm and sunny spring day at the playground of the gods. Always a good idea if you are skiing the clubbies to have your own Nutcracker and Harness.
