Winter returns with fresh falls of snow yesterday afternoon.
Getting close now, but not there yet. There have been heavy falls of fresh snow this week.
Work has started on clearing the snow on both sides of the col. It is estimated that the snow is 10 metres deep on the eastern side and 6.5 metres on the west. The main part of the work will take 2 weeks.
Still lots of snow. The ski station is now closed. I expect the col to be open in approx 5 weeks.
