Once again very similar conditions this morning, perhaps visibility isn't as good as it was yesterday but the mountain is covered in snow clouds and it is snowing.... nothing major just light snow at the moment and a bit of fresh snow overnight. It's another cold morning and currently -8 degrees on the thermometer outside.

And it looks like similar conditions are going to continue through the weekend as well. Cloud, snow, perhaps some breaks in the snow and a glimpse of the sun... it's all a very similar pattern as the last week or so. Monday and Tuesday seems to bring the promise of clearer conditions and no snow, but that is as the forecast stands at the moment and we all know how quickly these things change.

The slopes aren't crowded and very good snow out there. Fine conditions.
