The Bad News:

That rain we promised yesterday was a no show, alas, it is making an appearance now. We’re seeing a pretty bleak day out there today with moderate rain falling, heavy at times. Visibility is mixed, with some low hanging cloud milling around the peaks, occasionally dipping lower. Expect the rain to ease up but I’m told there’s some great ramen to enjoy in the cafeteria.

The Good News:

With tops of zero degrees at midday and dropping lower into the afternoon, this rain’s set to change its tune and give us another dump of snow for the week. We’re expecting the bulk of it Wednesday into Thursday, with over 30cm predicted — hopefully the rain changes sooner rather than later.

Road cover: slushy, icy in areas

Wednesday: moderate to heavy snow, light winds, top of -4C
Thursday: light snow, winds calming, tops of -5C
Friday: light snow, little to no winds, tops of -5C

Zones open include Summit, Rabbit, Beech & Stream. At this stage Shooter will remain closed until the main gondola is open.

News on Main Gondola:

At this time unfortunately the Main Gondola (Gondola 1) is closed for repair. The resort is working on the repairs, but it will require the next few weeks until it is back in operation. They estimate late January, early February for it to be back in action.
