Long Range Outlook
Finally some good news for skiers and boarders. Today we will see cloud increasing with the chance of some snow falling up high tonight and tomorrow. The lower slopes may be a little wet at times.

Tomorrow night will see snow falling that will continue into Monday and become heavy overnight on Monday with strong winds bringing blizzard conditions. Snowfalls will become widespread across Tuesday to low levels with blizzard conditions causing trouble on the roads. But the good news is the snowfields should see around 20-40cm of new snow.

Snow showers will continue on and off across Wednesday and Thursday keeping the cover in good condition. The sun will come out on Friday and stay out for the weekend which will be a great time to get in a late slide before the season ends.

Long range showers across the 21st and 22nd before a cool change see snow falling on the 23rd. Another cold front should hit the snowfields late on the 24th with snow falling again and continuing across the 25th

Be sure to check the resorts Covid-19 safe protocols as a lot has changed this season.
