Lots of happy people around yesterday enjoying all of the fresh snow on the slopes. I myself had a great time over at 47/Goryu, though wind did cause issues with some lifts.

Lots of the clouds cleared during the day leaving us with blue sky and some sunshine as well.

It's a cold morning again with light snow falling early on but we are expecting clearer conditions and maybe more sun and blue sky later on. Fingers crossed it'll keep cold for the duration of the day leaving us with really nice conditions again today.

Taking a quick look at the 6-day forecast... hmmm, really no snow on there after today by the looks. In fact, it looks more likely some rain around Sunday along with warming temperatures again. Hopefully they might dip again next week. March can be unpredictable and bring us some very nice surprises (like yesterday), so let us hope that we might get to see some more of that before the snowfall for the season is done.

Try to get out and enjoy things right now before it starts to warm up!
