We’ve had a pretty wild couple of days snow-wise on the mountain, yesterday we saw about 15cm fall throughout the day with tops hovering around -9C. Overnight we’ve seen another 15cm hit the ground, making for a pretty good start to the weekend.

It’s been a few days since the dump in the middle of the week so the snow should begin to settle, however at this stage the resort has decided to close the Tree Run areas until they can be sure the snow is staying put. If you’re heading up today, keep an eye out on the resort info in the dome, though there is plenty of terrain to enjoy today, with the amount of powder accumulating on the sides of the runs I doubt it will run out today.

Visibility has improved today, still varied though more to work with. There’s a chance for some light snow throughout the day, but nothing major just a cm or two. Other than that, we’ve got moderate winds and tops of -7C with a wind chill sitting around -20C.

Sunday: light snow, winds calming, tops of -5C
Monday: light to moderate snow, moderate winds, tops of -7C
Tuesday: light snow, light winds, tops of -6C

Gondola One Update:

According to the resort, they’re aiming for early February for the Gondola to be back up and running. Fingers crossed for the first week, but we’ll have to wait and see.
