Settled weather conditions over the last run of days and it looks very likely to continue that way. The sun is out and it's around 4 degrees as of 8am. Another sunny and mild day in store for us. We can expect largely similar conditions until the end of the week.
After more lifts operating for the weekend, we're back to weekday mode now with less choice. See below for what is planned to be open this week.
