Morning all.

A bit of snow to report this morning. I measure 3cm; the resort is reporting 5cm. So a think layer that won't be totally covering up tracks, but of course welcome all the same. But when can we expect some decent snowfall? I'm happy to report that the forecasts are looking very positive and good for decent snow in the coming week, starting sometime on Monday and getting Madarao-tastic around Tuesday and Wednesday - and hopefully beyond. It is looking like that suck us right back into mid-winter - where we want to be!

Earlier light snow to ease off leaving us with generally cloudy conditions. Perhaps even get some sun. Tomorrow is set to be sunny from early in the morning.

Deep fresh snow? Coming soon!
