21/01/2020: Today's Updates... Day 41...


Not a day for updates today, due to plenty of other tasks, however, it has been another mostly glorious day. There was a period this afternoon when cloud tried to move in across parts of the area, but it didn't end up spoiling things. It was noticeably milder today with some sunny aspects slopes seeing the snow softening in the sunshine, however, snow conditions in general remain very good and may actually improve on some pistes this week after the overnight grooming operation can work on the mix of natural and man made snow.

Next update early tomorrow. Will significant snowfall be in the extended outlook, or will the generally fairly mild and dry month continue?...
