After a rainy start yesterday, conditions cooled enough to allow some snowfall. While that snow didn't settle, it stopped the snowpack from melting out too much.

Today is a bit colder, between -3°C and -6°C, re-freezing the snow after yesterdays warm weather. Expect hard, icy conditions out there this morning, perfect for GS turns but not so good for powder 8's. Conditions up high will be a little better as the freezing level stayed around 1000m yesterday.
Looking out of the window it is currently cloudy, but all forecasts are calling for sunshine later in the day. So sharpen those edges, put your spandex on and pretend your in the Olympics!
