Spent the day on the mountain and all the open pistes have plenty of snow on them. Should only need a little more for the steep run off the top lift as it looks pretty good to go with plenty of tracks down it.

A clear day earlier has given way to light snow up top, light rain at the base and temps up top have been quite cold all day. Hopefully the snow falling now up there gets a lot heavier.

Forecast wise, things are now looking quite promising. At the mid level of Tenjindaira its supposed to be temps below zero and snow or cloud from here through the next 6 days. Could this be the dawn of Winter 2016?
