It's been snowing now since around noon yesterday.

Last night cleared momentarily and we had some fierce winds down the valley but the weather is back doing its snow thing as of this morning.

The plan was for Tenjin to open the cat track to the bottom today but apparently that is being pushed back. They have reported 30cm up top but in reality, there are probably areas with nothing and areas with drifts of a meter high.

Start times are back to 9am henceforth and I was up there this morning at that time and not a soul around. Reminds me of why I moved here.

Forecast is for slightly warmer weather tomorrow (it's cold right now) and tomorrow night it looks like serious snow on the way.
