Milder conditions remain here for the moment. The resort has reported 1cm of snow on the upper runs but it was wetter down here in the village. Still we are dry now and perhaps it'll be a generally cloudy day. There are some signs of breaks in the cloud so it might even get clearer. For right now though the webcam images from the top runs show very limited visibility. Not sure if that is just cloud or fog...

Let's look at the forecast again this morning. Fresh snow does look like it is on the way. Perhaps a dusting tonight, them more on Thursday and then right now Friday night into Saturday is looking particularly interesting. 'Heavy snow' sounds good, doesn't it? It's just what we need. This weekend please!

While the milder temps might persist a day or so longer, it should be getting much colder come the weekend.

This weekend has a lot to live up to!

Unfortunately the Skyline course as well as a few more have now had to close again - snow is just too thin on the ground on the lower areas of the resort. Updated details below. Better conditions and snow cover can be found on the higher areas of the resort.
