This morning was the coldest morning of the season. Very cold indeed. I saw the thermometer in the village say -10 degrees but also saw that up top it was a rather chilly -16.2 degrees. Hows that for cold?!

Just a few cm of new snowfall in the village this morning along with cloudy conditions, sometimes a bit of blue sky and sometimes a bit of light snow falling, but apart from the cold conditions it has been a good day on the hill.

Snow is forecast for overnight into tomorrow and then variable weather over the weekend but certainly not looking like it will be blizzard-like at all. Should be a good weekend.

We're getting into peak season mode folks. The snow is really good. The monsters are growing nicely. Don't you just love winter?
