We were all tapping our fingers yesterday waiting for the snow to start. By midday, snow was falling heavily. We’ve jumped from a base of 150cm yesterday to 210 today… 20cm yesterday afternoon and 40cm overnight. The biggest dump of the season! It’s still coming down heavily and should do so for a while longer. today’s the day for powder skis and boards.
The combination of -13°C and strong winds will make for a chilly day, so layer up. Face masks are highly recommended to keep the fresh snow off your face! It’s the first of February which marks the end of winter, though obviously there is still some snow around, plenty of snow.
Enjoy the snow today, it could likely be the deepest powder of the season!
