Good news this morning. It is snowing at a moderate rate and there has been 4cm accumulaton overnight. The snowflakes are very fine so there is not as much build up on the ground as would be expected for the rate of precipitation. The snowfall should continue throughout today. Temperatures are back to winter and it sure feels cold outside compared to the tropical blip that we have just experienced.

The slopes are still hard under the layer of fresh. The groomed areas are skiing pretty nicely, but the ungroomed areas are very rough underfoot and Premium Zone is closed for today. Wind is present but is light. Strong winds are expect from Wednesday afternoon onwards.
