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.

But always remember that outside the gates is not the ski resort anymore. Many risks are lurking in out of bounds area. Always be alert.

Strictly off limits areas are not to be entered at anytime.
Any ropes must not be ducked.
Have a nice day.
