Lots of gas-like cloud earlier on this morning but in the last hour or so they clouds have been dispersing and there's some lovely blue skies over Madarao. Still some clouds around but the sun casting big shadows in places... it all looks very dramatic.

Hopefully, dramatic is what the weather will be like come Monday and through at least the first bit of next week. We are promised decent snowfall, hopefully the kind that we think of as 'normal' here (but has been lacking so far this season). Can't wait.

For now though it should be a fine morning.

Fireworks after night skiing tonight.
