It was... hot, yesterday. As a snow reporter, not my favourite adjective to describe a day. We saw tops of 11 degrees at the base with not much of a difference at the top. Mostly sunny throughout the day, and then unfortunately some showers overnight.

This morning, we’re headed for tops of 3C with a bit of rain and a bit of snow, depending on what part of the mountain you’re on. In the morning we should see some moderate rain regardless, but throughout the day light snow should start to fall, with about 20cm expected at the top.

Keep an eye out on the snow at the moment — with these hot/cold/rain/snow conditions we’ve been experiencing lately, its making it prime season for slides. Keep this in mind if you’re planning on finding that sick line that no one else has — it may be untouched for a reason.

Other than that, it’s good news that we’re going to see some snow. The bad news is that Spring is without a doubt around us now, with over 100ml of rain expected Thursday/Friday night. No snow in the near forecast that we can see, yet. More on the upcoming week below...

Tuesday: snow showers, moderate winds & tops of -6C
Wednesday: mostly sunny, calm skies & tops of -2C
Thursday: cloudy with heavy rain in the evening, light winds & tops of 6C
Friday: heavy rain, calm skies & tops of 7C
