Oh yes. Some people may not like this kind of huge dumpage - I'll call them silly people - but I love it.

It's one of those days when I am reporting numbers that are larger than the resort is posting - they are probably worried about scaring folk away. A bit of a blowing wind may also have something to do with that. Anyway, there's loads of snow around. I am measuring 48cm of fresh on the ground and that is the biggest number I have been able to report this season so far. The resort is reporting 50-54cm on the top areas.

:)

There may well be some delays in lift openings this morning, but I can't find any such info as I post this (8am).

If you are keen to venture out in such conditions, be warned - visibility is looking very limited. The snow should be easing off later this afternoon.

Tomorrow we are still expecting some sunshine, so it should be top notch conditions. If you are not able to be here, I guess you are perhaps just a little jealous! I'll try not to rub it in. ;)
