Quite strong winds today (which haven't seemed to affect lift operations) and more importantly some new snow to report as well. Much colder too as well today. Brrr, cold out there with not very good visibility out on the slopes.

The snow should continue tomorrow as well but likely less severe conditions over the coming weekend.
