We went from no snow to a white Hakuba pretty quickly and the snow continues to fall. The night of the 23rd was the biggest fall to date but snow fell slowly and steadily through yesterday continuing today and there was and still is plenty to keep groom-dogs and powder-hounds alike happy.

Not a comparatively large amount of snow overnight but enough to fill up some of the holes and groomed conditions are great.

Things look likely to clear up somewhat later on today.

Temperatures have remained cold so the snow has been light and fluffy and the forecast is for continuing snow for the next week - Tuesday night and the following few days is looking particularly promising for some heavy snowfall on the current forecast - so we can expect a bumper New Years.
