The mild spell continues. Cloudy to start with in Zao here, and about +3C at base. As of 8am this morning the resort was reporting a coldest temp of -3C up at Utopia. Strong winds outside but lifts around the mountain are moving as they should be.

Forecast? Well, seems there's a chance of rain tomorrow - possibly snow higher up - but then it should get colder from Saturday. Strong winds through today and into the weekend though so we need to keep an eye on that...
