Despite some promising snowfalls earlier in the month the weather has been all over the place with reasonably warm temperatures and not much in the way of snow.

Temperatures have cooled down again, and the week ahead will see consistent negative temperatures on the upper mountain but positives at base level.

There is a light snow cover on the upper mountain of around 10cm but the snow line has retreated with the warm weather and the lower slopes are bare.

The forecast is showing 3cm of light snow today at the top and rain at base. After this there is nothing forecast over the next 6 days.

A substantial snowfall will be required, but the resort plans to open this Saturday 29 November if snow conditions allow.

Forecasts can rapidly change... fingers crossed.
