Lots of cloud this morning but visibility is improved and if the forecasts are right we might get to see some sunshine today and tomorrow. We can't be expecting fresh snow until maybe Tuesday night and likely Wednesday.

There are a lot of people around at the moment and tomorrow will also be busier than a normal Monday as it is a national holiday. If we aren't going to get any fresh snow it would be good if we got some clear views of the mountain...

All lifts are operating and all courses are open.
