Yesterday warmed up, which was expected.

It was still surprising to see just how warm it got especially down in the valley where it was even approaching 20 degrees! Surely unheard off as we approach the end of December. Shocking numbers.

It wasn't quite as warm up here of course but still unseasonably mild. Still, it is a bit wet up here though we are expecting snow during the day today and tomorrow as well. So I am hoping for a positive report tomorrow morning with news of fresh snow on the ground.

A few more areas opening from today including Giant and Terakoya but snow is still limited on the ground and open courses around the area are limited.

We're in need of more snow (as if I need to say that!)
