It is pretty much a repeat of yesterday with perfect blue skies and very cold temperatures. The sun is out, and if you are in the sunlight there is definitely a warming effect on your body, but in the shade it just feels cold. All main runs have been nicely groomed overnight. Although I am reporting 0cm of new snow in the village there was a significant amount of fresh snow at the top of the resort. It is fairly busy on the lower mountain with plenty of school groups but no significant queues so far.
