This morning I awoke to bluebird conditions with a great view of the mountain. I had a shower and when I got out it was snowing quite heavily. 30 minutes later the sun came out again. Since last report there's only been about 5-10cm of snow around the resort. Not quite enough to cover yesterdays tracks but the sun and incredible views today should make up for any lack of fresh snow.
Some further snow showers can be expected today so enjoy the sun whilst it lasts. Quite a few events around the resort this week to celebrate the Chinese New Year holiday so be sure to keep an eye out for some great entertainment.
