After that first blast of winter, things went back to autumn mode for a while there but the last few days has seen a return to colder weather and more early winter like conditions.

The "summer" season lift operations at Utopia finished on November 3rd and the resort is pretty much on standby now waiting for more snow to fall. Currently there is just 5cm or so on the top of the mountain, so we need a fair bit more to get going!

The official opening ceremony for the resort is on 5th December, but hopefully there will be some action before then.

The coming weeks looks set to bring slightly warmer weather to the region with just small amounts of snow every now and again over the next week or so.
