A few more days left in the season for a few lifts (noted below) as we reach into the last part of the season.

This morning it's a warm 6 degrees even early on in the day, and nice and sunny. The forecast is for conditions to change during the day though with cloud due to appear and by the end of the day rain is expected, possibly heavy rain accompanied by strong winds. Colder temperatures too. And after that, possibly snow over the weekend. It's certainly an interesting forecast.

I'll post another update in a few days...
