Good news everybody!

Well it has been a very unusual start to the season this year with plenty of snow having fallen combined with warm temperatures in between. As a result the snow on the hill has varied a lot between excellent and patchy. As of around 1300 yesterday however we have been getting pounded with snow. In just over 20 hours more than 26 cm's of snow has fallen in the base area and it doesn't look stopping any time soon.

Looking on the weather forecast is predicting snow for the next two days which is just what we want to hear.

I would still be exercising caution today as there are some areas of the slope where we still do not have much of a base despite the heavy snow we are currently experiencing.
