Crisp, cool weather up in the mountains this morning.

We have seen a little light rain but not enough to do any harm and the snow pack is holding its depth for now. Also got some snow falling up high but not enough to be significant.

The forecast is for clear, cold weather tomorrow, a little snow Tuesday and then what looks like a dump on Wednesday. Cold weather and a little snow on Thursday and Friday too so potentially some good riding later in the week.

As an aside, was over at Hodaigi this morning and the resort is humming with plenty of people and still enough snow to run most of the lifts.
