Very cold night last night with the wind and today wind is a factor - some lifts stopped today due to winds including the Sky Cable Gondola, though the other Ropeways seems to be moving.

More fresh snow on the ground though so wind aside it's great conditions.

Cloud forecast for this afternoon and perhaps some sun tomorrow and Tuesday. Next snowfall due from around Wednesday.

Winter continues!
