It is -2 degrees this morning in the village... no new snow to report and only a slight wind. It's a cloudy morning but patches of blue sky as well and it is fairly bright. We might see the sun later on and also tomorrow but after that the cold front is moving in and we can expect to see what we really want to see --- snow!

Yes, looks like the snow should arrive sometime tomorrow and then we are on for a string of snowy days with heavy snow at times right through until the weekend. Some fresh deep powder would be just the thing to top up the slopes, feed those Ice Monsters and get back to top conditions.

The Lightup has been popular so far with lots of people taking the trip to the top of the mountain in the evening to see the fantastic scenery up there. Even if you have been up during the day, it takes on a whole new look at night with the coloured lights.

Official snow depths on the resort:

Chuo area:

Paradise area:

Utopia area:
