Woke up to a nice blanket of white in the Village this morning. As predicted the snow line gradually worked its way down the mountain to greet us.

There were some large flakes falling at about 10am and bigger ones up on the slopes.

Just now the sun has started to appear, probably not what we wanted to see but very picturesque all the same.

Yesterday up top the snow was falling but visibility was limited. Today looks like the cloud is a bit higher

The forecast is for snow to continue through out today and then a bit of sunshine for tomorrow so will make for a nice weekend. The resort was running alot of the lower lifts this morning but just for a service I would say. Think we are still a while off opening teh lower slopes yet.

But if the snow pattern contnues as forecast the base should develop its usual building pattern ovre the next few weeks in time for a pretty white christmas

Resort operations unchanged.
