And to todays report...

A few cm or so of fresh snow perhaps on the mountain during the day yesterday and there were some good conditions to be enjoyed up there. It felt something like a mid-winter day, which is what most days should feel like right now of course. A good thing!

Slopes and lifts were less busy as well, certainly over at 47 where I was in the afternoon, as lots of people started making their way back home after the long weekend. It should be much quieter from today.

This morning it is pretty cold here in the village with a dusting of new snow around base areas and light snow falling early. It's mostly cloudy right now with some blue sky to be seen in places and even the sun trying to break through as well.

Snow remains on the forecast over the coming week - hopefully decent amounts and regular as well, obviously. The colder conditions are should stay with us as well.
