Morning.

Overcast this morning as we wait for this upcoming storm. It will probably be raining lower down by the end of the day and hopefully we can avoid that up here. But lower down it should be turning into snow soon enough with decent snowfall lined up on the forecasts over the next few days. Looking good!

For now a fairly calm morning and the popular slopes are getting noticeably busier now.

As far as I can tell the only area that is still not yet open is Hasuike. All other areas are at least part open.
