Yesterday the temperature continued to drop through the afternoon and the winds increased in intensity shutting down most of the lifts on the mountain. Overnight there have been moderate and at times heavy falls of snow. This morning it is still snowing and strong winds are persisting up high. You don't have to be any sort of avalanche expert to understand that a whole lot of new snow on an icy base is going mean high risk of avalanches and that is exactly what we've got and ski patrol are unlikely to open any gates today. Higher lifts are also unlikely to operate due to the continuing strong winds. Off-piste down lower there should be some great powder turns to be had though they are unlikely to be bottomless just yet, maybe by the end of today if the snow keeps up.
It's very cold this morning and wind chill factors up high will be significant so beware of frostbite on exposed skin.
Cold temps and snow is expected to continue throughout the week. On Friday another low pressure system will approach from the west and initially it will get a little milder before colder weather and further heavy snowfalls return over the weekend.
