Well spring is certainly in the air with warmish mornings and warmer days. The ice pack covering the roads has receeded to reveal the colour of tar seal that hasnt been visible for months. It is a nice spring morning with blue skies and plenty of sun. Temperatures have been well below freezing overnight so the snow will be firm on piste and slowly softening as the day rolls on. There is a very slight breeze which this is expected to pick up in the afternoon.

This evening the resort should get a light dusting of snow. Temperatures will be warm, and by warm I mean above 0c through until Saturday, and then on Sunday they will drop back into the negatives.
