Original report

This morning there's another 50+cm of fresh snowfall to report.

It has been a heavy snowfall of heavy snow - at the base, I guess it is more powdery at the top.

Unfortunately the wind created big snowdrifts that hamper the full operation of the ski area, so it looks like there is going to be a limited number of lift and courses available.

The risk of avalanche is definitively high today. Stay on the runs.

More snow is expected…before a quiet weekend (in terms of snow, I'm sure people will be wanting to be here!)

Official data (as reported by the ski area):

Peak: 380cm snow depth
Base: 260cm snow depth
