While the snow cover around the village is finally just about to let the ground break through, there is still good coverage on the mountain and fine skiing to be had for this time of year.

It is mainly cloudy at the moment but there are large patches of blue sky and sunshine being exposed. The main weather feature today will be the wind which is whipping around the base with moderate vigour and will stay that way for the rest of the day.

The outlook for tomorrow is much the same with the winds reducing on Friday, and then Saturday looking like a stunning spring ski day.
