Welcome to Wednesday and another 30cm of snow officially reported by the resort since yesterday. Less than that in the village I would say, but new snow all the same and it's all building up that base nicely. Don't be confused by the official snow depth going down to 130cm... these things do happen and can usually be explained by snow being compressed and groomed as well as 'wear and tear'... that kind of thing.

Anyway, today Madarao is expanding operations. The Super Quad lift will be operating today as wlll as the two lifts that had previously been moving. That opens up more terrain out there.

Some cloud remaining over the top of the mountain but it seems like conditions are clearing and one local forecast tells us to expect clear weather today. As we get into tomorrow though snow is going to make another major appearance - perhaps the biggest of the season as we have literally 3+ days of heavy snow lined up starting Friday. It should be snowing by the end of tomorrow and then into Friday expect some potentially wild weather conditions and snow to be falling right through into Monday.

Lifts currently operating:
Number 1 lift
Number 2 quad lift
Super Quad lift
(subject to change depending on conditions)

Official snow depth:
130cm
