The early morning temperatures that were recorded by the resort are wintery, and what would be expected at this time of year, but the day has warmed up significantly already and we are heading towards temperatures that will be well into positive territory today.

There is a thin layer of high cloud above the resort which is letting the sun penetrate and I think this cloud layer will lift later in the morning. There is now new snow to report.

Looking back at Feburary we had snow on 17 out of 28 days, and a total snow fall of 132cm for the month. For Feburary the year before (Feb 2016), it was a big year for snow and there was snow on 26 out of 29 days!
