Good morning.

Oh yes. Oh yes. It surely is.

Not great if you like sunshine and blue skies. But if you love quality fresh snow, there's a lot of it around this morning.

The resort has 40cm on their website and I have just been outside to measure 35cm. And it continues to snow with the forecast telling us to expect the clouds to remain over us for at least a few more days. This is really going to kick start things into full gear pretty quickly, I would imagine.

So, if you are on the way here - lots to look forward to but take care on the roads and come prepared for some cold and snowy conditions.

At the time of writing I can't see any changes to planned operations for the day, but as the snow continues to build up and the resort manages it all, we can expect more to open.
