After waking up to plenty of fresh stuff yesterday, it was a pretty enjoyable day on the hill. Wind and visibility did little to dampen the awaited snow, though there definitely was some moderate wind about, and at times the vis struggled. The snow fell lightly throughout the day, about 10cm fell.

Today, the world celebrates love & Hallmark cards. In this hobby & on this website, a love for powder. Which there is plenty. Overnight we’ve seen the 40cm and we’re looking at tops of 0C around lunchtime and moderate winds with some light snow into the afternoon, to pick up intensity at night. Probably another 20cm by tomorrow morning. We’re expecting the snow to get blown around a little with 75km/h winds expected at the top tonight.

With a little less snow falling this morning as opposed to yesterday this is actually a good thing — we’ve given the snow a chance to settle and it will end up being a little more rideable today, and faster — less “good lord why am I willing along my skis/board as if my life depended on it down this trail”, and more “let’s do that run again”.

Trees may be closed this morning, keep an eye out on the conditions board in the dome. Ski Patrol will open if they deem it safe to do so — but as long as its closed the fresh snow isn’t going anywhere, so don’t stress.

Here’s your reminder to buy some flowers in case you forgot. Otherwise, enjoy yourselves.
