Since our dump of snow over the past week we saw some more forgiving conditions yesterday with the visibility perfect and the wind easing for most of the day. Snow was falling here and there, and overnight 15cm has fallen across the resort.

Today, we’re looking at tops of -6C with about 5cm set to fall throughout the day and light to moderate winds. That wind chill is set to get down to about -17C so keep that in mind and dress for the occasion.

Pick for the day would definitely be the tree zones — at the moment all are open and ripe for the taking with the snow quality best in the trees where its been sheltered from the wind.

Though if we give it another couple of days the powder everywhere else should become more forgiving as it sets a base.

As for the next few couple of days...

Tuesday: light snow, moderate winds, tops of -8C
Wednesday: light snow, light winds, tops of -4C
Thursday: light snow/ partly cloudy, light winds, tops of -5C

Official snow depths:
