It's been a very ordinary season to date, with systems failing to deliver the white stuff.  The mountain has valiantly defied the weather and continues to make snow to cover the toboggan runs. But nothing is as good as the real thing.

So this Friday (19th July) through to Sunday should see good snow falls at Lake Mountain, and signal that winter has finally begun, even if a month late.

So hang in there and stay glued to the web cams over the weekend. They should show lots of white.
