This morning has brought some welcome news!

The official base has been increased to 95cm and even though we received relatively little snow yesterday we are inching toward the century mark. The second and most important announcement today is the opening of the lower Sailer runs tomorrow (Friday 29th) and with it the Sailer Gondola. Great news for everyone here and I’m sure the weekend crowds will be just as excited as I am. What a surprise!

Outside it’s currently sunny with some very light snow falling and a base temperature of -5. Expect that to continue most of the day and into tomorrow with no predicted snowfall (except the stuff that is falling now). Yesterday was not pleasant at all with the wind picking up in the early afternoon and getting worse through the course of the evening providing some nice snow berms throughout the resort. Early on this morning wind might be affecting the gondola and top Number 4 lift this morning.

Still no forecast snowfall in the works for us though but the winds should die down a little and with temperatures steady in the -6 range we should have a few pleasant days ahead. Just make sure your spf50 is on.

Have a great day.
