Good Morning!

Pretty on and off day yesterday, with some low hanging cloud sticking around and messing with the visibility throughout the day. Eventually, it cleared and the snow started falling lightly. Since then, we’ve seen 10cm overnight and 15cm since my last report.

As for today, heading for tops of 1C with partly cloudy conditions and a chance of some light snow here and there. Wind is light but will build to moderate into the evening so rug up as that wind chill is going to get down to -13C.

Enjoy it — doesn’t look like we’re in for any more snowfall until Tuesday.

Friday: snow showers, moderate winds, tops of -3C
Saturday: light snow, light winds, tops of 0C
Sunday: snow showers, light to moderate winds, tops of -3C

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.
