Good morning everyone.

Today we have a pleasant surprise with 20cms of fresh snow at the base of the mountain today, with up to 40cms in my sheltered areas. Kagura are reporting 30cm of fresh snow.

Today’s temperature is -3 degrees with weak winds, with some snow still falling as we speak.

Yesterday’s weather was generally overcast with light snow showers throughout the day then getting heavier into the evening.

Looking onto the weekend, get you’re sunny’s out as it looks like it’s going to be a spring like day tomorrow in particular.

There's a real chance of rain on Sunday unfortunately, though hopefully higher elevations will escape and get snowed on from the off.

A return to colder conditions and snow is expected early in the week.

All lifts and gondolas are open.
