Morning.

Couldn't be much better news this morning on the second day of the season with a good 24cm of fresh snowfall to report, and the resort themselves reporting 30cm on the slopes; with 10cm on top of groomed slopes this morning.

Whatever - it's a good new layer of fresh snow this morning.

It's still snowing and visibility is poor but we want as much snow as possible so I don't think anyone is going to be complaining!

Sunshine is due tomorrow with more snow coming Tuesday. That kind of regular snow-fine-snow-fine-snow pattern sounds pretty good to me. Emphasis on the snow of course.
