Good morning on a Saturday, and what a great day it is looking. The news today is that the resort has opened another lift. This time it is the Prince Romance lift for beginners. Night skiing will also start from tonight on this lift with the Prince Romance Course being the night skiing course for now, and open until 19:30pm.

Lift operations aside there is good news on the snow front too, with 13cm of very light snow blanketing the village this morning. The weather is moderate snow with low cloud, but no wind. The snow should continue all day and the forecast is saying that tonight will be the heaviest fall. Fingers crossed we wake up tomorrow to find the same as today or better.
