Again, it didn’t snow overnight however it was dumping all day yesterday. We’ve got another 20 cm of new snow!
This new snow might cover all icy bottom now. Be careful loosing your ski, I saw many people were searching for their lonely ski in deep snow. Upper area which is closed at night skiing time should be great and deep today.
Snow will stop falling and sun will show up this week. I should be ready for hiking soon.
