Well the snow eased last night and late in the evening the skies cleared completely allowing temperatures to drop back to around -14 this morning. Today has dawned mostly clear with excellent visibility around the resort. A great opportunity for those who've been here the last few days to actually see something and maybe explore a little more. This window of fine weather will, thankfully, be brief with snow expected to return later this morning. Still there's not much better in this world than enjoying up to waist deep powder under blue skies.
Anyway there was still around 10cm of fresh snow before things cleared up and there's plenty more snow expected throughout the weekend.
