The daytime temperature hit +5c yesterday and snowpacks at base went slushy. It wasnt until evening when I went for a drive that I realised how warm it had stayed. Still +4c at 7pm. Roads had been melted clear of snow. Last evening light rain arrived, and persisted overnight. The temperature right now is +3c. The rain has turned into sleet and will be snow further up the mountain. The bad news is there is no snow to report this morning. The good news is temperatures will be back into negative figures today and overnight we can expected moderate falls of snow. The weather will remin cold for the next 6 days at least with continuous snowfall.

On the slopes today expect wet snow conditions underfoot. There is low cloud and mist covering the resort at the moment and visibility will vary between limited and poor.
