It is another calm morning here in Madarao (after that lively evening last night).

In contrast to yesterday with those blue skies, it is a more grey and overcast start to the day. It is keeping cold and hopefully will remain so during the day though temperatures are forecast to venture into low positive numbers this afternoon.

There might be a bit of rain falling before it starts but the forecast is shaping up for some very decent snowfall this coming week. It looks very promising for regular and at times heavy snowfall. That's what we like. Fingers crossed it is right.

Meanwhile, there's fun to be had.

Tomorrow is a national holiday and so there is night skiing open tonight.
