Good morning from snowy Mt Stirling! The flakes are falling here with snow down to about 1000m elevation. If you are heading up today you will find excellent cover on all trails and areas of the upper mountain. With low temps over night and a forecast max of -3 the snow cover is dry dry dry! Extensive grooming has flattened the snow base and with a cover of fresh on top skiing will be a delight. The bowls have some fantastic skiing although visibility will be an issue today. Snow play and tobogganing are available at TBJ - if you wish to explore more of the mountain on foot you are required to use snowshoes. The cleanup continues from tree damage after the recent wild weather. Watch for hazards.
