I had fun up on the top area yesterday and the weather was good. Just all a bit too warm for everyone's liking.

A good chunk of the resort is open, though snow is pretty thin on the ground in lower areas particularly - we could really do with another good sustained delivery of fresh snow to really kick things off.

Today is starting off with more cloud but the forecast is that we will see the sun again and a high temperature of 7-8C expected at base later on in the day. Clear and sunny conditions are expected tomorrow as well with the potential rain on the forecast possible downgraded since yesterday (ie. maybe less than we thought). That would be good.

The forecast also still says snow for Saturday and a return to colder conditions.
