As expected the snowfall continues to remain on a short break but the weather is pleasant out there with only a slight wind this morning. The slopes aren't too hard with the odd bit of sun poking through the clouds but just be a little careful of the odd patch of ice that is floating around the streets.

Rest of the day will continue to be covered in clouds and We are hopeful for some snowfall tomorrow but it may not be substantial enough till the days end.
Keep an eye out for the link course to open as preparation is underway.

Being a long weekend it will be a good time to get out and enjoy.
