Last day of the season for a few lifts today (see below) and if my maths is correct that leaves us with 11 lifts operating.

A fine morning it is too with blue skies and the sun out - warm too - but some clouds are expected a bit later on in the day today.

Rain tomorrow here at base... snow on the top of the mountain? Maybe! Will let you know how that turns out.
