Rain! Partly sunny/cloudy yesterday with rain and wind setting in in the early evening. Consistent mild rain all night, washing away a lot of the accumulated snow in the village. There is still lots snow/slush on the roads.
It’s warm and drizzling at village level now with temps about 1C. We’re hoping all this rain was falling as snow on the upper mountain. Looking up there, the lower mountain is still very patchy.
Opening tomorrow? Maybe the upper runs but we’re not as confident now… stay tuned!
