We saw a fairly mild day yesterday with temperatures hitting a high of -3C and some cloud passing across the resort throughout the day with light snow here and there.

5cm of snow into this morning with conditions looking a little chilly out there with some wind to blow the snow around a bit.

Tops of -6C but with some moderate to strong south easterly winds it’s going to leave us with a wind chill around -20C at times.

Light snow throughout the morning and into the evening. Visibility is varied with the wind causing a flurry of snow here and there, but over all good vis.

SUNDAY: snow showers, moderate to strong winds, tops of -5C

News on Main Gondola:

At this time unfortunately the Main Gondola (Gondola 1) is closed for repair. The resort is working on the repairs, but it will require the next few weeks until it is back in operation. They estimate late January, early February for it to be back in action.
