Another healthy 24 hours of snowfall with 20-30cm of the good stuff building up around the village and up on the mountain. More lifts opening and the village is buzzing!
The computer models are showing more of the same with a boost in intensity expected tonight. Tomorrow could be deep! It might peter out tomorrow sometime and then we might have a few days without much falling. A bit sad for the powder junkies among us (guilty!) but there at least now there is plenty of terrain and base open to explore every day. We might even get a bit of sunshine! Enjoy.
