Morning from Madarao.

The resort themselves this morning are describing the snow conditions out there as 'corn snow' (thankfully it's not yellow!) and that from now it's time to enjoy spring.

I think it's kind of a case of any proper blasts of winter now seen as a bonus, though I recommend you take a look back at what happened last March in the archive reports. You never know! We can surely expect more snow - just how much is anyones guess of course.

Anyway this morning the sun is out and there's blue skies above us, with just a bit of thin cloud around. Quite chilly. Should be a fun morning with those first tracks.

(The tree runs remain closed).

Fireworks after nighta tomorrow.

On this coming Sunday (and the Sunday after - 8th and 15th), it's time for a Madarao Speed Challenge again over on the No1 Paradise Course.

As you might expect, it's all about speed and none of this messing about with silly turns. There's a number of categories and anyone can enter. It's free too. Up to 200 folk allowed. Entries accepted from 9am in the morning.

I might say 'don't go too fast', but that wouldn't be much god would it! ;)
