Wow, was it ever cold over New Years! But those who ventured out were rewarded with some amazing conditions.

Vid: The Mountain Motorsports crew were out ripping pow this week too.
The good news is that the temps are a lot warmer than last week. When -12 feels warm, you know you’ve been through a cold snap.
We’ve had about 30cms in the last week, but to be honest, it felt like more. There’s another 30 forecast in the next week so here’s hoping that it comes in with more than predicted and we get a full reset.
