Concrete in the morning yesterday but the blue skies and warm temperatures made for a great spring session day with icy patches, slushy landings and lots of hits for all the free-riders out there. All the skiers and boarders who only eat powder have been staying at home, their loss we say; but we really need a decent snowfall to keep our enthusiasm up as one can only take so many spring-like days at the start of February.

It was pretending to snow in the valley this morning but looked more like dandruff being brushed off the shoulders of those up above and Goryu's report of 1cm of fresh on top didn't create any barging for the Gondola this morning. Not the coldest, -2 measured on top this morning and 1.5 degrees in the valley right now.

Winds were measuring at 15 m/s this morning but seemed to have died off a bit now. Visibility on top doesn't look the best. Forecast is for cold temps overnight and a bluebird day tomorrow meaning it should be fun out there once the snow softens up a bit.

Still no storms on the radar...
