10cm over night, light winds, temps below zero up top and a shade above at the base. Lots of mountaineers getting up there today but still wasn't officially open this morning.

Can't be far off as there is a solid foot of snow in the forest.

Its now been snowing or snowing intermittently for days and a mix of good quality pow, to heavier stuff with some graupel in between.
