The snow just keeps on falling and thus far temperatures have remained enough below freezing that it's still great quality powder. Up around 20cm has fallen since last report which will have mostly covered up yesterdays tracks.
Today gate 6 at Moiwa is expected to open so it's a great time to check it out if you've never been. Probably be able to find freshies all day long.
The snow is expected to continue today but probably clear a little overnight allowing temps to drop back to an expected -10 degrees. So a chilly start to Christmas tomorrow morning. Some snow is now expected later tomorrow which is great as it's always nice to see a little snow falling on Christmas day.
There was some concern earlier in the week that there might have been some rain this weekend down low but currently that's looking very unlikely with further snowfalls expected right to village level. It will get a little milder though and the snow will definitely not be the same blower powder we've been getting the last week and a half.
