Just a dusting of snow this morning and the sunshine is very bright.

Blue skies above, the courses are clean white and perfectly groomed. All ready to go on this last day of three-day weekend.

Snow condition is not icy but waxing will be important, especially in the afternoon.

There is definitely more snow in the Urabandai area this year than last. Let's hope we can keep going through until early May!
