It was a cloudy day yesterday with strong winds especially in higher areas, and some upper lifts affected for the day.

No new snowfall to report from the village or around the resorts this morning. It is a cold start to the day but we have some nice blue skies on show this morning along with some remaining cloud around the mountains. The sun is shining down here now and it feels like it's going to be a fine day.

Wind isn't causing quite the problems that it did yesterday, thought it looks like Goryu has the top pair lifts stopped at the beginning of the day due to wind. Hope they'll be able to get those moving soon.

With the weekend crowds now gone, fine weather and nice snow.... it should be a good day.

Looking ahead into the week, expecting some sunshine tomorrow and the next snowfall around Thursday.
