Yesterday was a pretty stunning day and today looks even better with the white slopes of the resort surrounded with 360 degrees of blue skies, and to top that off the sun is out as well. Make the most of this as it is likely high cloud will roll over the resort later in the day and remove the nice blue skies.

Temperatures are pretty cold with -10c at base, and these temperatures will persist over the next few days. The slopes are in great condition but the snowpack is a bit firm due the the recent high winds and the sun baking that we got yesterday.

The good news is the winds have vanised and there is some fresh snow on the forecast for today and tomorrow. If the snow comes through then the heaviest falls will be late afternoon and tomorrow evening.
