It was a beautiful morning yesterday and even though skiing and boarding options are still very limited, it was a fine time to be up on the mountain.

More clouds appeared during the day and after a mild overnight we have started with very cloudy conditions early this morning. And rain... which hopefully will be snow by the end of today as things start to get colder from this afternoon.

Resort operations remain the same as yesterday for the moment.

Snow is due tomorrow. I'm expecting and hoping to be bringing you good news tomorrow morning.
