Yesterday was pretty much as forecast with a mostly fine, partly cloudy day and temps on the lower mountain got slightly above freezing making the snow reasonably heavy. Overnight temps dropped to well below freezing again and there was a dusting of snow. The sun and warmth affected snow of yesterday will have frozen to a breakable crust on the lower slopes. On piste though the groomers will have prepared some very nice and fast slopes. Up high in sheltered areas some nice snow should still be found and today it is mostly clear so an ascent of the peak is definitely recommended to enjoy the best snow and incredible views.
Rain is still forecast for tomorrow but I'm hopeful that there will be a reasonable amount of snow to follow on Saturday.
