It's a stunning morning. Amazing. Blue skies, fresh snow.

We are really having a treat of an early season this time round.

Resort operations remain the same but I expect more to open up soon - surely by the weekend at the latest. The link up and mountain pass are valid from Saturday, so perhaps that is the target.

The resort is reporting 20cm since yesterday evening but that doesn't include what we got during the day so my number includes that and is well over 30cm. So conditions this morning should be really fine.

Let's Madarao.
