What a wild day it was yesterday!

Some of the strongest winds of the season forced closure of the entire top half of the mountain. Only the lower pistes remained open in slushy and very warm conditions.

Fortunately we didn't receive as much rainfall as was perhaps expected with the majority falling overnight in combination with slightly colder temperatures. However, there was no new snow to report overnight.

We have a better start to the day today. The sun is out, the strong winds have abated and the rain has moved on. Snow conditions will be slushy top to bottom from the outset today. Stick to the well groomed pistes for the fastest conditions as the off piste areas will be sticky from the rain. Again, it should be a good day for park skiing.

The amount of weekday skiers is remarkably low at the moment with the feeling you are at your own private resort when riding the pistes.

Looking at what's expected over the next week, we should see much improved riding from Wednesday, when a cold front expected. Snow is forecast out of this system continuing into Thursday but it's not clear how much we can expect from it. Friday should be clear but remain coolish.
