Good morning from Madarao.

Clearer skies this morning though there is some cloud up there - a mix of white and grey. It feels calm outside my place here now, but my patrol friend tells me that there's a southerly wind this morning. Here's to that quickly changing to northerly on that front...

And the other thing that we are most looking forward to is the return of snow clouds... due sometime this afternoon with snow also forecast for tomorrow.

So it looks like we can look forward to a top-up over the next few days (and looking ahead a bit further it's looking like it'll be snowing Sunday into Monday as well). Regular snowfall. That sounds good to me.

Today should be less busy than it has been the last few days as many people will be returning to work after the new year break.

The groomed slopes look very inviting this morning. Perhaps see you out there.
