Some pretty light but consistent snow throughout yesterday, with tops of -6C and a moderate wind that cooled down into the evening.

3cm of snow overnight, but we’re in for a pretty pleasant day out there conditions wise. Tops of -4C with barely any wind (<10km/h). Also, the sun should be out for the majority of the day, a few clouds as well and some possible snow showers.

I wish I had more to say today, but conditions have been fairly similar for the past few days. Same rules apply — put on a helmet and hit the trees, or get out the all-mountain skis and carve up the groomers. For the weekend, as we have a bit more sunshine heading our way with some light snow Saturday night, maybe 10cm into Sunday morning if we’re lucky.

Seems as if we’ll have to wait another week for any decent snowfall, but as March looms closer, as does our biggest month of snowfall so stay tuned...

Friday: snow showers, light winds & tops of 0C
Saturday: light snow, strong winds & tops of -2C
Sunday: snow showers, moderate winds & tops of -6C
