Good morning to the second day of 2017!

We have cloud and foggy covering the resort this morning so I would expect there to be areas of low light at the least, if not reduced visibility due to fog. So take care out there and ski to the conditions as bumps and variable snow conditions may not be easy to spot.

On the temperature front it is pretty mild with the resort recording -4c at base earlier this morning. As I write this now the temperature has already risen and is sitting just below freezing. There is some light snow coming down and 1cm has accummulated overnight and snow flurries are expected through out the day.

The snow coming down today will be the last we may see through until next Saturday according to the forecast. That seems like quite a dry spell to have thrown at us give all the snow we have had so far this season. Let's hope that the weather system can deliver something else between now and Saturday.
