    Had been considering wandering across to Rocky Knolls on the weekend but never got around to it. Studied it closely from the lifted area and it just didn't look worthwhile. However that may just change by the weekend however...

    Same.

    I don't think anyone will be able to comment on what the conditions will be like post-Friday because there about to change if this snow comes off.

    I'd be cautious on any steeps, Rocky Knolls should be fine and great fun!

    The weather dudes are getting all excited, so it could be good on Friday. Like Belly said may pay to be carefull on the steeps if they get loaded. May have to take Friday off. [​IMG]

    VMTC had a trip through the Rocky Knobs last w/e. Heavy breakable crust for the weekend! Conditions (hopefully) will change tonight with snow to 700m
