Another fairly cruisey day on the mountain yesterday, beautiful sunny skies in the morning with a bit of snow falling here and there (very lightly), then waivered between moderate and light snow into the evening.

This morning, there’s about 10cm of fresh snow on the ground but we’re expecting another 6-10cm by the end of the day, so fingers crossed. What may toy with that however, is that there’s some forecasted 80km/h winds for this afternoon at the top, and depending on when that hits, we may see some wind hold, if not total closure of the chairlifts in the afternoon due to the wind. Keep an eye out for information on that, to save yourself a hike should this be the case.

Temps should start off a few degrees below zero with tops of -3C in the morning, but we’ll see it hit 0C around lunchtime. Though if you’re planning on hitting the slopes for night skiing, rug up as it’ll get back down to -10C.

As for the snow, as I said above, today is when we’ll see the most amount of until at least Tuesday night when it’s looking like about 10cm overnight, but that could change at any moment so as always, take it with a grain of salt...

Sunday: light snow, light winds & tops of -4C
Monday: mostly sunny, light winds & tops of -3C
Tuesday: mostly sunny with snow developing, a light breeze & tops of -1C
