It looked like it might be getting sunny early in the morning, but the light snow turned back on again, so hopefully there will be a little fresh powder out there (we could use a little reset in places). Looks like some very strange weather ahead, though; tomorrow should be sunny and a little warmer, and then the freezing level is going to start moving up almost to the peak of Mt. Myoko. Meaning we could have some rain (blechhhh) on Friday into Saturday. Then the temperature is predicted to drop very fast with snow returning. That could mean the formation of an ice layer which would then be loaded with snow, so it's a good time for anyone heading off the piste to keep an eye on things, go prepared, and be ready to not go if things get very sketchy.

You just never know! Let's see what happens over the next few days.
