Stronger winds again this morning but not enough to bother the lifts as far as I can tell and right now cloudy conditions prevail... the rain that we have on the forecast is not falling just yet. Good visibility though and I can see the top of the resort from base, it's just a grey kind of day. There's hardly anyone out on the slopes as well and so the people out there will be having it almost to themselves.

It's going to warm up today, perhaps into double digits, and while tomorrow will be less warm the sun should be back with us. No snowfall on the weeks forecast - perhaps we have seen the last of fresh conditions?
