As predicted, yesterday was a little messy out there. Fresh snow, yes, but with the 85km winds most of that fresh stuff was hidden elsewhere — though it definitely was there if you wanted to find it! We saw tops of -7C and with moderate winds out there, sure was nippy.

Today — after some light snow showers overnight and strong winds similar to yesterday, 25cm of snow but on the bright side (literally), the sun is out! Not completely, there are some clouds and we are expecting some snow showers into the afternoon, but nonetheless it appears we’re getting our weekly dose of sunshine.

Tops of -4C at the bottom, -8C at the top and some light winds for the most part of the day. A chance of a snow shower this evening.

After the past half week or so of heavy snowfall the resort finally had the chance to open the trees (when the resort gets close to a metre of snow, its safest to close the areas and let it settle for obvious safety reasons, also makes it easier to ride). So strap on the helmet and get in there, it should be magic and from all reports, it was a quiet day on the mountain yesterday so it won’t be too tracked out this morning.

As for upcoming snowfall, Saturday is looking our best bet with about 20cm into Sunday morning, but unfortunately we’re also seeing some very strong winds forecast (70km+), so we’ll just have to wait and see what this will make of the snow conditions…

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