It is looking like another great powder day with 6cm of new snow overnight and heavy snow falling at the moment. The flakes coming down are large and very fluffy, and accumulation is building quickly on the ground. There are very light winds and the snow coming down means that visibility is okay but not great. It should improve as the snow fall eases off.

All lifts are operating and all courses are expected to be open except for Premium Zone and Giant Course, which looks to be in great shape but has a few dips in the piste.

The snow will ease off this morning and no snow is expected on Wednesday. From Thursday through Saturday continuos light to moderate falls are forecast.
