Just a dusting of new snow overnight and it was cloudy morning in the village but has been snowing since and we should be enjoying a decent snowfall this weekend. All fingers crossed!

As I speak the official 'opening ceremony' for Zao is taking place. A few more runs on the mountain have opened up for the weekend as well with parts of the Paradise and Utopia runs opening for the first time this season earlier on this morning.

Snow is still thin on the ground as we wait for that snow to arrive. I hope to bring good news on that front tomorrow.
