There are some light snow flurries falling at the moment that has left a dusting of 1cm on new snow on the ground at base and 7cm at the top of the mountain.

It is a mostly clear day with high overcast conditions. Visibility is good and there is nothing in the way of wind at town level.

The temperature is -12c and will head up to -9c by midday.

Snow conditions on mountain are excellent with groomed powder on most trails.

Just a reminder that night skiing is operating on both sides of the resort until 7:30pm daily.
