Good Morning!

We started out with some sun yesterday morning but before mid-morning it quickly changed, giving us some light snow for an hour or two and a couple of cm’s. Today, we’ve recorded 2cm overnight, and though that isn’t much to report, the powder across the resort is still light and dry thanks to the low temps. The calm winds is also playing.a factor, with the surface of the snow staying forgiving.

Light snow is expected throughout the day, perhaps 5cm across the whole day, with the wind to start light and gradually become stronger into the afternoon, but only by a little bit. Tops of -5C. Currently, the 2nd Gondola is only open on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. This shouldn’t affect your day though, as the terrain is still fully accessible and midweek we aren’t seeing big crowds.

Temps are set to warm up for the next two days, with Saturday showing some above-zero temps. No precipitation forecast though, so we should be safe. Then, more snow expected from Sunday into early next week.

Friday: light snow, tops of -2C, light winds
Saturday: light snow, tops of 2C, winds increasing
Sunday: light/mod snow, tops of -4C, moderate winds
