It is a very good morning here in Geto.

Yesterday was a fine day with just a gentle wind.

Overnight though some fabulous snow clouds moved in over the region and this morning we have an impressive 40cm of fresh snowfall on the ground. A rather strong wind too with snow forecast for the day -- and tomorrow too.

Visibility limited but... reset time!

Note that early on just the Number 2 pair lift is operating - others on hold due to wind. Once things calm down conditions should be fantastic.
