Not much change overnight since my report late yesterday. There was some occasional light snow through the night that will keep the piste in great condition but not enough to fill in yesterdays tracks off-piste.
Occasional light snow showers will continue through today and the next couple of days with temperatures getting close to freezing at village level during the day. So we should see all the new snow around start to settle and compact down. Still some great deep turns to be had out there today though, especially in lee slopes.
All gates accessing the side country are still closed and will remain so for the next few days until avalanche danger subsides.
Still looking good for another system with reasonably good falls to come through from Boxing Day and then further out it looks like a fairly major system will see out the end of the year with a return to very cold and snowy weather.
