Just 5cm or so of fresh since yesterday to report this morning and once again this morning there's a thick bank of cloud over the top half of the mountain with clearer conditions lower down. Interesting scene actually.

So no snow falling right now, it's just... cloudy.

Still should be a good morning and I reckon there's a decent chance of it clearing further.

We're forecast to be enjoying more fresh supplies of snow over the weekend. It should remain cold so come prepared for that.

Remember fireworks on Saturday from 9pm, followed by torchlit skiing and a few festivities on either side.
