Couldn't really ask for much better weather than we've had over the last couple of days and today looks like another cracker. Temps have remained fairly cool getting only a little above freezing at the base of the mountain with hardly a cloud and crystal clear air. Snow quality on the upper mountain has remained in good condition and down lower it's been going through freeze/thaw cycle, so hard in the morning and slushy by the afternoon. The resort is not quite a ghost town but compared to mid winter it is very, very quiet.

Most seasonal staff have now gone and with many companies downsizing, especially the construction companies, it looks like it's going to be a very quiet couple of months till the summer tourists begin arriving.

The weather is expected to stay mostly fine through much of the outlook with the possibility of a few snow showers Sunday night into Monday but nothing substantial.

From now I'm probably not going to be posting a report every day. I'm looking to get a few reports up per week for the remainder of the season.
