Bluebird yesterday and there was still plenty of fresh snow to go round. Spent the day at Hodaigi which was excellent.

This morning sees overcast skies but no new snow as of yet. The forecast is calling for snow showers to kick off today at some point and looks like we will get something decent this evening.

For those keeping a close eye on things, we were skiing in a minimum of 50cm up on the mountain 2 days ago and it was chest deep in many places. Long range forecast is highlighting a significant storm kicking off on Saturday night and running through at least Tuesday.
