The snow storm continues.

Resort reporting 20cm of snowfall; I am measuring 24cm. Really great quality snow too. Temperatures are keeping very low - it is very cold out there.

It looks like the 3A lift is struggling with the conditions and not opening this morning. Other lifts may well be delayed. I would check directly with the resort if you are one of the brave ones.

So the conditions out there are still not very friendly and quite a few people will probably decided to sit it out. But the refresh we are in the process of receiving will most definitely be worth it.

Sunday might be when things calm down. It should be an excellent weekend - but be prepared if you are coming.
