I'm very pleased to be able to start the reports for the 2016/2017 season. Last season was a strange one, as I remember all too well having to report on it every day. So fingers crossed that the coming season will be one of much more snowfall and much more consistent conditions.

There has already been a few snowfalls on the mountains here, with the first creeping down to base areas on 1st November, though no cm to report.

We enjoyed a run of days with clearer weather since then, until yesterday morning when I woke up and there was 6cm on the top of my car. Oh yes, it felt good to be wiping snow off the car. No doubt there was more snow in higher areas up on the slopes of course and the snow continued throughout the day, along with some strong winds blowing about as well. So my first snowfall report for the season in total since yesterday is a decent 10cm, with the chance of a bit more falling overnight tonight as well (though it may be rain in lower areas).

The first ski lift movement of the season should be on Saturday 19th November, if there is enough snow of course. After that there's an opening ceremony on Saturday 3rd December and then the 'grand open' (everywhere open?) on Friday 23rd December. Lets see what the weather brings.

I will post a few more reports before the season gets going.
