The promised snow has come in with a nice dusting of light, fluffy snow.

Cold temperatures are helping the snow quality after the wettish snow of the day before. It looks as if both the snow and the cold temperatures are here to stay for the day. The only fly in the ointment is the strong wind which could cause disruption to the lifts and lead to some interesting drifts. These may well be hidden by the poor visibility so take care out there.

The roads are also pretty slippy today so caution advised if driving.

The forecast currently has us down for snow today, clear tomorrow and then more snow showers leading into the weekend.
