Really excellent news this morning with a hefty chunk of new snow to report.

I say 'chunk', but it's all nice and soft and light... what I mean is, there's lots of it.

How much? The best part of 50cm, and that is what the resort is reporting this morning too. Can't ask for more than that. Well, not without sounding too greedy anyway.

More tree run courses open as well this morning.

There's really not much more to say on a morning like this. Conditions should be up there this morning. And I would be silly not to get out there and play in it.

I hope that you can too.

Nighta every evening through until 3rd January.

(Quick note: keep an eye on the forecast page - clearer skies due tomorrow and over new year before a return to snow around Tuesday).
