Good Morning!

After yesterday’s snow no-show (tongue twister, I know) we saw beautiful sunny skies with some impeccable riding conditions out there. Dry snow, even though touched by the wind was forgiving, with some fresh pockets to be found. It seems the predicted snow until Saturday has been postponed, instead we’re going to be seeing partly cloudy conditions today again with great visibility and tops of -5C at the base.

No new snow in the past 24 hours, but with the light winds yesterday the fresh snow should still be forgiving and easy to slash. Picks for the day would be the tree runs in the Rabbit zone, provided you’ve got a helmet! Otherwise, the groomers are slick today to get some carves in.

Temperatures should cool into this evening further, with a chance of some light snow into tomorrow morning.

Saturday: possible snow showers, light winds, tops of -4C
Sunday: possible morning snow shower, winds easing, tops of -5C
Monday: clear skies, winds increasing, tops of 0C

Zones open include Summit, Rabbit, Beech & Stream. At this stage Shooter will remain closed until the main gondola is open.

News on Main Gondola:

At this time unfortunately the Main Gondola (Gondola 1) is closed for repair. The resort is working on the repairs, but it will require the next few weeks until it is back in operation. They estimate late January, early February for it to be back in action.
