Things are a bit better this morning as we have had some new snowfall - not a huge amount by any means but enough to allow a few more courses to open today. In the Chuo area the triple lift will be moving as a pair lift in the Utopia area. Other runs are being checked at the moment and expected to open as soon as possible.

With the snow falling and decent snowfall forecast for the next few days, hopefully within a few days larger areas will be open.

-----

Just a quick update to let you know that more parts of the resort have now opened up. At the moment parts of the following areas on the mountain are open - Chuo, Utopia and Paradise. It is still snowing so expect more to open up for the weekend.
