Wow! After weeks without snow we’ve just woken up for the second day in a row with a fresh blanket and quite heavy flakes falling. Woohoo!
It’s not going to be deep out there but no one will complain about a little top up to play in. It’s a lovely mild morning with light winds so all lifts should be open. No need to venture out too far today – just stay near the pistes and have fun with any fresh stashes you can find.
Looks like a dry week ahead but potentially another day or two snowfall next weekend. Fingers crossed!
