The weekend's fresh snow turned to elephant snot yesterday after a good baking. It's warm here again today and there was snow forecast for later in the week however it's now looking like snow up top but rain down below. Usually doesn't work out quite the way we want it but whatever, it's just a forecast and this season may yet have legs. Last Sunday was really really good!

[Please note there will be a bit of a break in the daily reports here. We'll try and keep updated if there is more snow down at base.]
