Morning!

A calm day on the hill yesterday for the most part, we saw tops of -4C and mainly light winds, with some light snow falling throughout the day.

Today, we’ve woken up to 20cm of fresh snow, and the winds have picked up quite a bit, we’re looking at some mainly strong winds throughout the day and some moderate snow to continue into the afternoon. The winds are going to be particularly nippy, with the wind chill getting down to -21C.

The moderate snow should turn to heavy snow into tonight, with hopefully about 25cm to fall from now, into tomorrow morning. As for the next couple of days — this is the only snow we’re going to see for what looks like another few days, but with these chilly forecasted temps it should stay right where it is…

Sunday: light snow, moderate winds, tops of -10C
Monday: snow showers, moderate winds tops of -5C
Tuesday: clear with a chance of snow showers, light/moderate winds, tops of -7C
