We had snow all the way to base level yesterday—not much, but it was snow. The ski area is now white down to the bottom lift stations, although not yet enough for skiing.

A hard frost overnight made things slippery as wet roads got icy, but the clear skies in the morning soon got things warmed up. By 8 a.m., however, clouds started extending out from Mt. Myoko; a front is moving in from the west that hopefully will start several days of snow and much colder temperatures. In short, the start of a really important week for everyone impatient to get up on the hill.


9pm update:

Snow! It started falling about 3 p.m.; by 9 p.m. we had about 30cm at base level. It's falling heavily now, and hopefully will keep going through the night.

I'll update in the morning, and keep on giving reports to start the day. Cross your fingers; the weather report has snow for the next few days. THen it's just time to announce the first lift starts....
