This morning brings cloudy skies with temperatures at the base of -3.

No snow is currently falling as I write this but we are scheduled for snow later this morning and into the evening.

Yesterday was also kind to us with another 14cm observed here and Appi now increasing their official base depth to a whopping 75cm. With the additional snow Appi has decided to make some fortunate people happy today and have opened addition runs on the mountain. The unfortunate side of too much snow... if there is such a thing... is that the main gondola yesterday was delayed from opening by 3 hours. Lets hope today isn’t a repeat of that as the only way to the top is via 4 lifts and it’s not too much fun via that route.

Yesterday was just a wonderful day out there with knee deep fresh powder and very few people to turn the hills into mini mogul runs. We’ve been waiting all season for this kind of day and everyone who was out there yesterday had smiling faces.

The next few days should bring a sprinkling of snow with winds light at around 3-4 M/s. Temperatures are also supposed to sink a little into the -8 to -10 range.

Have a wonderful day on the slopes.
