No new snow yesterday apart from some sparse fluff falling at times in the early morning. Mostly fine day yesterday and crystal-clear star-filled night last night.
It’s super cold right now at village level, and forecast to warm up a through the day as a storm front comes through tonight. We’re expecting to wake up to a solid 30cm+ tomorrow morning, with good falls looking likely almost every day for the next week.
Our guess – the resort will open within the next few days. Still thinking Saturday but let’s wait and see :)
