It is a nice morning and the wind from yesterday seems to have passed.

There is very light cloud cover above that is broken up and the morning sun should partially hit the resort at times.

Warm temperatures yesterday morning softened the snow pack and this morning it will be firm and frosty underfoot.

We are back to winter temps with a cold -14c start which will rise to -7c. There is the possibility of light snow in the afternoon.
