Strong winds during the day yesterday affecting some lifts.

No snow earlier - just cloud and gas - but it has started snowing again now (actually quite heavily in the last few minutes) and fingers crossed we're on for a few days of snowfall that will bring new cm to the area.

Poor visibility in places this morning.

Yesterday was the first evening of the season when the floodlights were on and some lifts moving. Good to see nighta back!
