For the sake of continuity in this pre-season period, I feel compelled to report the snow.

Seems a bit mad that we need to wait over 3 weeks before the lifts are scheduled to start operating here. We can expect some milder conditions this week but there is more snow on that forecast. All looking very positive which is a great feeling. I wonder if lifts would open early if we had tons of snow...?

Here's the forecast:
