Good news on the snow front with moderate precipitation and 4cm accumulation on the ground in the village. Conditions are low cloud this morning and this is causing variable visibility on the mountain when combined with the snow. Temperatures are mild but it sure feels cold due to the moderate wind whipping around the village. The winds on the resort itself are varying between moderate to strong and are interferring with lift operations. See below for the lifts that are on hold.
