Yesterday was the best day of the season so far, with some incredibly deep turns in places and that nasty ice layer well and truly buried.

Another 13cm keeps the conditions fresh out there, with colder temperatures leading to blower powder out there. The wind is also stronger, so wrap up warm as it's chilly out there today. Right now the wind may cause the gondola to slow, but it will still be able to open. However if the wind increases the upper lifts may close.
Snowfall is due to continue throughout the day, tapering off tomorrow.

It is a welcome change from the icy and dry conditions we had last week and perhaps a sign that winter is slowly rolling in.
