It was good to get the clearer weather yesterday morning rather than rain, and then... the snow came. Nice.

This morning the resort is reporting 20cm of fresh snowfall and for my report I'm measuring 17cm. It's snowing still and a bit windy at times with windy conditions forecast for the day, so it's getting blown about somewhat. Great to have that layer of fresh though.

Tomorrow clear skies and sunshine are expected across the region along with once-again milder conditions. But if we get a bit more snow before it eases off today, first lifts Saturday morning should be great.
