Back to normal with the lifts and courses this morning and 10cm or so of fresh snow to report. Yesterday was rather uneventful in terms of what was open on the mountain and the weather (bit wet at one point), so good to see us back to snow and open.

The resort is this morning reporting 25cm of fresh snowfall on the top runs.

As you can see from the images below, visibility is poor. Not much to see. Care needed.

The snow is really coming down at the moment as well so I expect it to be piling up quite quickly. Which is what the forecast has us down for today and tomorrow.

Winds might well still affect things today again, so got to keep an eye on that.
