Morning from Madarao.

And it's a windy morning here after a windy night (and I almost forgot, wet conditions in the day), but with a good 25+cm of fresh snow on the ground too. I think that's a decent number to report given the wind and that it'll be less/more in places.

The wind is actually affecting resort operations with the Super Quad lift currently on hold and the Number 13 lift resting out the day. The Number 2 quad lift looks like it will be opening but has been delayed.

Conditions should calm down later on and we're likely to get some sun tomorrow at least for part of the day. Looks like things will be settling down again once this storm passes.

It's mad to think that we have just one more week left in February. The winter season flies by way too quickly. Slow down please!
