I was just looking over the other reports today. Unfortunately, it's raining in Zao as well. Or should I say, it was this morning, less so at the moment as I type this report. It was up to around +3 even early on this morning and its a bit warmer than that now.

Snow conditions out there feel like late rather than early March all of a sudden - amazing how quickly things can change, especially early and later in the season. The good thing about that is that we could be in for more twists and turns before we are done.

We might see a bit of snow tonight but it is just before the weekend that we should be looking to for the chance of a nice decent new covering on the slopes. Should be getting back to 'cold' as well.

In the meantime, a few more mild-ish and cloudy sort of days lined up.
