It feels good to be able to report a decent amount of snow this morning, although not a mega number, 7 cm at village level is significant and I would expect up to 15cm on the mountain. More important than today's 7cm though is the fact that there will be continuous snow for the next 6 days at least. Dont expect too much in the way of sun over the next 6 days as it is likely to be overcast each day.

The weather is being nice today as well, being mostly cloudy, but some pretty big gaps in the clouds are letting good lighting through so there are no issues with visibility as I write this report now.
