Sun in the sky yesterday with some snow here and there and tops of -7C.

Today, very similar with some more snow showers throughout the day. We’re likely to see some moderate snow in the evening giving us about 10cm throughout the day and into the night. Tops of -4C and winds are light to moderate, so it’s looking like a beautiful day.

Both gondolas will be spinning today, as the quad chairlift is out of action. But I promise the resort has a good reason — the snow has gotten so high that the chairlifts can’t clear it. A day of digging for the resort ops by the looks of things, so hopefully we’ll see it open on Wednesday. Told you I had a good reason.

As for the week ahead, the further we get down the week the better its looking — particularly Friday and Saturday with about 20cm between the two — nothing crazy, I know, but we’ll cross our fingers and hope that next week we yield a better snowflake harvest...

Wednesday: snow showers, moderate winds & tops of -5C
Thursday: light snow, a light breeze & tops of -4C
Friday: light snow, winds increasing & tops of 0C
