Apologies for the late report today.

Well... we saw some insane snowfall yesterday — thick, dry flakes falling in numbers without pause all day, and into the night with about 30cm hitting the ground. Cooler temps on the hill (hitting a top of -7C) means this snow should stay perfect — until you guys get to it.

We woke up to a further 40cm this morning, meaning since my last report we’ve seen 70cm of fresh snow. It should ease today, with moderate snow expected to chill out around lunchtime down to a light shower, then back to moderate tonight. A top of -8C in the morning cooling down to a top of -6C by this evening — but make no mistake, it will be a cold one again. Winds are moderate and the chill should be around -18C all day…

Same rules as yesterday — if you’re a powder hound get into the trees (provided you’ve got a helmet), and if you’re not quite up to scratch, cruise down the groomers and hit the pow on the sides of the runs. Above all, enjoy yourselves.

Advanced: C5 looks like it’ll be nice after being tracked out yesterday, the fresh snow should have filled into hose gaps making it a cruisier ride than usual.

Beginners/Intermediates: B1 and C4 should have some nice pow on the sides if you’re feeling adventurous.
