Good news this morning. The wind has dropped to 47km/h at the peak, allowing the Gondola, Asari #2 and Nagamine #2 lifts to open.

A further 4cm has fallen, helping to cover up the layer of ice that has formed after the weekends warm weather. That ice layer is still very present outside of the groomed runs, so caution is advised in steep terrain. Temperatures have fallen to -16°C so wrap up warm.

More snowfall is expected over the next 3 days, with a spike in wind tomorrow night before it calms down and clears up late in the week.
