Started off fairly cloudy yesterday with some looming clouds in the distance. They got close enough in the afternoon to start raining on our parade (no parade I don't think, though it definitely did, literally rain. A lot). We saw tops of 11C (hence the rain, not snow) and winds that climbed to 90km/h in the evening.

The rain was heavy overnight, and unfortunately still heavy this morning. Into this afternoon the temps are set to get below zero, alas, the precipitation will have moved on and we're going to see maybe a cm of snow if we're lucky. Headed for tops of 7C in the morning, with the temps dropping in the evening to a top of -4C.

We have lost a bit of cover after last night, though the groomers have been out there as always getting it nice and slick. I believe the banked slalom is coming up soon (Early this coming week), so get practicing and enjoy your Friday.

Though we're not set to see any snow until maybe Monday morning, the sun is out tomorrow and after a good freeze, the snow quality should sharpen up...

Saturday: clear, sunny skies with light winds & tops of 0C
Sunday: sunny with some afternoon snow showers, light winds & tops of 3C
Monday: light snow to clear by the evening, moderate wins & tops of -1C
