And today is even better. 50-60cm of new snowfall being reported by the snow and evidence of such a snowfall at my feet. How's that for a number this morning. Heavy snowfall since yesterday has really given us some deep conditions this morning and conditions that have prevented some lifts from opening on time as staff arrive (eventually) and get to grips with all that snow.

As light as the snow is, it sure is heavy! Hope that makes sense!

The snow continues to fall and it is cold this morning. Poor visibility on the slopes.

The storm should be passed by tomorrow when the sun probably be out shining down on us and it won't be as cold as it is today.

Great conditions. I hope you can partake and enjoy.
