It is -8c this morning in the village and compared to yeaterday's -20c it actually feels warm. There is no new snow to report, however the forecast is still predicting continuous snow from this morning through until Saturday evening. Conditions are currently overcast with clouds hanging around the peaks but not rolling down on to the resort runs, so visibility is good but a bit flat in places. The same overcast weather will persist until tomorrow, and on Saturday the sun should appear again.

In terms of operations I am happy to be able to announce that the Premium Zone is open today for the first time this season and a reminder that night skiing operates until 7:30pm on both sides of the resort.

Anyway fingers crossed the forecasted snow starts up soon...
