The long weekend begins (Monday is a national holiday).

And it begins with 40cm of fresh snow with strong winds during the night and many fresh lines available this morning.

The base temperature -9. A little foggy up on the mountain with the snow falling so visibility is not excellent, so ride with care.

Some of the Off Piste Areas are open for the first time this season.
