Cloudy skies this morning, very light winds and a great day to head up the mountain.

The fresh powder that so graciously visited has left the runs in perfect shape today. There are very few people on the mountain at present and no waits for the lifts and gondola.

Tomorrow should be relatively similar but it’s the calm before the storm.

Thursday will not be pleasant considering the 30+cm of snow we are expecting combined with 100km/h winds….you read correctly. We are anticipating nearly white out condition starting on Thursday afternoon so I highly recommend heading up today or tomorrow.

The runs are in great shape given the amount of fresh snow we’ve had over the last week and we eagerly await the opening of the Nishimori runs on Friday to add to the excitement.

Arrive together, Ride together
