Looks like the freezing level is going to stay below the tops most of the week as well. Lets hope for plenty more this season.

I think admin frowns on us doing too much of that, tends to slow things down? Sure there's something about it in the FAQ...

Lets hope it carries on all the way until next June, with a spattering of clear, cool days with no wind...especially on the weekends when im up there snowHead

D G Orf, Just think what it's like at the summit! A remember shouldering skis up there a few seasons ago: it was fairly calm at the Ptarmigan but blowing a blizzard at the top, and my misted up goggles froze the moment I took them off! I guess that's why they've repositioned the webcam from the summit to the Ptarmigan? Or is it still there Puzzled

Nadenoodlee, you poor thing. Ill again. I don't think you're drinking enough. I hear you have to drink 2 litres every day. Well that's over bottles of wine. With that on board the bugs get pickled before they can cause any trouble.

Wish I was going up this weekend. Sad

Webcams showing plenty of snow. Temperatures low for the next few days and snow showers forecast. Now we just need to figure out a way to keep it there for another month or so when the real winter weather begins.

Latest view from Ptarmigan webcam: click here.

At the time of posting this was not a 'crystal clear view', to coin an understatement. There seems to be a small amount of light penetrating the camera, and 50cm of snow on the upper lens. Maybe the funicular driver could be provided with a little lens cleaning device, so that he can nip out of the cab for this little duty during train stops?
