It's beginning to look like winter again here. There was about a 5cm snowfall last night and there is some more still falling down at the moment. It's actually accumulating rather quickly and the temperatures feel fairly cold! This could bring us another powder day in March, which is what we desperately want and need. I know I would like a few more powder days before calling it spring corn official!

Yesterday brought us some warm temps and snow later in the day, but it tapered off becoming clear. Overnight the clouds rolled in and dumped some of the white stuff. It's good to see that it's still falling too, so we may get more throughout the day.

Keep in mind all of this new snow is easily going to slide off the old layer. Visibility is bad at the moment, but is supposed to stay like this all day. If we do get a lot of snow quickly, we will have to worry about soft slabs everywhere. The snow is light in density so it won't breed much of a problem unless we get a lot.

The forecast is saying tomorrow will be warm and clear. Saturday will be uncomfortably warm with the possibility of rain - let's wish against that!

Today will be a good one to get out. Have a good Thursday.
