I'm really not getting to enjoy much rest before the season starts!

I am, however, enjoying seeing all of the fresh snow. I must say, I really wasn't expecting this much... perhaps I am not paying enough attention to the forecasts, or I am just not into the groove yet. For which I apologise. But anyway, there's a solid 18cm of fresh snow outside my place this morning and since my last report.

This really is a very promising start to the pre-season. I have already reported 46cm of snowfall and there is still nearly two weeks left before the lifts plan to start moving. There's definitely going to be some decent depth of snow at higher elevations already and some people have been spotted walking up there.

Might the ski resorts be tempted or able to open earlier than planned? Well, let's not get ahead of ourselves right now. We are still due for slightly warmer conditions into early next week, with more snowfall lined up on the forecast around Tuesday.

Next report when I have more fresh snow to tell you about...
