There is no fresh snow to report once again, but from Monday onwards things are starting to look interesting with substantial snow on the forecast. For today the weather is pretty good with overcast conditions, but still fairly bright out on the resort with very good visibility. Despite lacking fresh top ups recently the slopes are still in excellent condition and are certainly not icy at all.
