In yesterdays report I mentioned that Sunday might start off calm - and calm it is. There is a fair amount of cloud hanging around but lots of blue sky as well and the sun is shining down on some of the slopes this morning as it manages to peek through the clouds at times. It all looks quite dramatic out there. Earlier on it was -3C outside and now around 0C.

No new snowfall to report down here but the resorts got a few cm or so overnight. We can expect some crusty conditions today.

We are of course still looking forward to snow clouds to move in later today and for decent snowfall later on and into tomorrow.

For now though there's just a slight wind and good visibility out there.
