About 5cm of snow on the ground and it's coming down nicely just now as I sit here writing this report. Looking like it's going to be poor visibility out on the slopes, or certainly most of them, this morning, and with moderate to heavy snowfall due to continue I think that's going to be the story today. The price we must pay for the goods!

Going to keep cold for the day too, and a real contrast with the relative warmth of yesterday which felt almost spring-like - and so did the snow in places as well. Don't want to even mention that word just yet! Luckily, we're back to winter today.

The snow and cold should continue through tomorrow maybe easing off as we get into Sunday.

Look for some decent numbers being reported tomorrow morning! Should be a good weekend. Just wrap up well and be ready for the weather.
