Great news this morning with the arrival of 5cm of nice light powder snow overnight. There are still some very light snow flurries coming down and this may continue through the day. This new snow is accompanied by nice sunny weather and blue skies so it is definitely a day to head out to the lifts as soon as possible.

Tomorrow is forecast to be clear and sunny, and then from Monday onwards continuous snow is forecast through until Thursday at least. It certainly looks like the mini dry spell we have experineced is over, and next week will give plenty of powder days.
