As forecast, the weekend has started off with some clear skies. Blue sky all around. A lighter shade of blue early on, but I think it's safe to say that it will be a fine day, though some clouds may move in late on. Tomorrow we might see some rain falling up here, so we can just hope that is kept to a minimum. It looks like there's a chance of strong winds as well that may well affect the lifts.

As we get into next week, we can expect things to really start warming up around Tuesday/Wednesday.

Some more lifts are areas open for the weekend as below.
