The good news for anyone kicking around resort at the moment is that passes will be free for the day as is parking in resort. They’ve taken this momentous decision after heavy snow last week and fantastic early season snow. And with more snow due this week and the skies looming grey as I type, by Saturday the slopes should be in optimum conditions.
