More snow falling on mountain yesterday during the day. I spent a bit of time at 47 where visibility was rather limited while I was up there, and it kept pretty cold too.

Great to see the snow hanging from the trees and of course feel it under the board(s).

It's a mix of conditions this morning again. Depending on where you are in the valley you might be getting snowed on (higher up), have the sun shining down on you and/or just have lots of cloud hanging around. Generally it's mostly cloudy at the moment, but it doesn't quite seem to be able to make up it's mind. Currently -1C here at village base area.

There's a bit of light snow hanging around on some forecasts - especially for higher elevations - at times over the next few days, with others telling us to expect sun all the way through tomorrow.

Temperatures should start getting slightly higher from tomorrow, though not by too much thankfully (high of about +5C?)
