80cm of fresh snow since yesteday.

How does that sound?

Talk about timing, as the resort prepares to get those lifts moving tomorrow morning. Just the 2 lifts tomorrow, with more open from Saturday.

Madarao will decide on whether to get those tree run courses open at the weekend sometime tomorrow. The Mountain Pass with connecting Tangram will be available from 20th.

So here we are. On the verge of a new season. And it should be the best possible start with a bit more fresh due today and then clearer skies possible tomorrow.

I for one am mega excited. And you should be too.
