I meant to write a report yesterday as we had fresh snow but circumstance took me away, sorry about that.

But yes. We have snow! Over 10cm yesterday and add to that more this morning, so the total goes on my report this morning.

I'm not seeing any official news yet on potential opening. Fingers crossed we get more snow today and then lets see if there might be enough for a limited opening...
