Good Morning!

Shaping up to be an absolutely beautiful day out there, blue skies with a cloud or two from what we can see, with tops of -5C expected and some light snow showers on the cards. Light to moderate winds, bringing the wind chill down to -16C at times.

About 3cm overnight, but yesterday afternoon we saw about 5cm, so since our last report there’s been 8cm. Still, not that much to make do with, but the blue skies should compensate for fresh snow with runs groomed top to bottom with some slick corduroy available. Snow quality is hardpacked and groomed, with any leftover powder still dry thanks to these well-below zero temps.

As for the coming days leading into the weekend, we’re not set to see any major snow until what looks like Sunday into Monday morning, where we might see 30cm or so. Until then, just little bits here and there…

Thursday: light snow showers, moderate winds, tops of -5C
Friday: light snow showers, light winds, tops of -2C
Saturday: light snow, light to moderate winds, tops of 2C
