There are some light snow flurries coming down but it looks like these could ease up anytime soon. There has only been a dusting of snow overnight so conditions on the slopes will be the same as yesterday. The clouds are expected to break up during the day and allow more sun onto the town. The forecast for Saturday and Sunday is for light snowfalls, but unfortunately there are no significant dumps expected in the next few days.
