A bit of a break from the snow this morning as we have some blue skies above us. Still some cloud in one direction but up above blue skies! It is keeping very cold though, with Kumanoyu reporting -10 degrees just a little earlier on and the thermometer here saying -7.

The Bunadaira quad lift will be joining in the fun this morning.

We might see a slight dusting of snow tonight, but it's from tomorrow night that the fun really looks like starting. From Friday through into Monday, heavy snowfall is forecast for the entire region and if it comes off we should be looking at nearly full operations by this time next week at the latest. Fingers crossed. Just keep this in mind though if you plan to be here at Christmas and be prepared.
