The slopes are still in fine condition despite the fact that we havent had too much in the way of new snow recently. There is some good news on the snow front with possibly around 10cm predicted from tonight on the upper mountain according to the mountain forecast. Not a lot, but it certainly would freshen up the runs.

Today is a fine day with light overcast conditions right now but the sun should break through during the day. There is little in the way of wind out on the mountain.
