Morning!

After a cracker of a day yesterday with some fantastic powder (though the vis struggled at times), we saw the light snow turn to heavy into the evening. And then the winds came.

Though we’ve seen 25cm of fresh snow into this morning, there were 85km/h+ winds at the top overnight, and not much less at the bottom so I’m expecting it will be a little messy out there in places.

Expecting tops of -5C today with a bit of light snow (<5cm all up) and with some moderate winds, we’ll see that wind chill dip down to -17C.

Trees may still be closed today, again check the conditions & map in the dome. If they are open, remember that the snow is deep, with just shy under a metre of snow hitting them since they’ve been open last. So keep that in mind before you try anything crazy — is it worth the 10 minute dig and hike?

The snow seems to have settled for now, coming into the weekend we should see some light snow here and there. Saturday looks most promising with about 10cm into Sunday, but it looks like we’re going to have to wait until at least mid week (this coming week) for our next snowfall...

Friday: snow showers, moderate winds, tops of -4C
Saturday: light snow, moderate/strong winds, tops of -5C
Sunday: light snow, moderate winds, tops of -8C
