How's the snowline looking these days? Can't imagine November 10th is happening with the inbound pineapple. Was hoping to get some turns somewhere next weekend but don't fancy walking to 2000M for rain crust.
No dice. It's getting 50/50 on the top down to "maybe" base of Emerald. After that it's a slushfest mudslide. We need everything to drop 4-6C and things will start making sense. But the good news is, there was about 2m of snow up there before this pineapple came into play. From what ops have told me, the wet and warmth is just gluing it all to the hill as a pretty awesome base. So this is at least an optimistic perspective.
But my rule of thumb has always been, screw the opening day - 1.5m of base at Pig Alley is when I "consider" going up; 2m is a definite "ON".
