More snow today! And we're seeing some sun at the moment, making it that much more fun to enjoy the powder.

Sorry not to get a report out yesterday; after a crazy end to the first day of the year—trains stopped locally, expressway shut down, roads in a pretty bad state—follow up was pretty hard on the 2nd.

Today, though, we're back in order, ready to report, and with good news for snow hounds. Namely, I think we've had 80 cm or so over these two days - hard to tell with some winds along with the heavy snow, but lots of fresh.

The sun isn't staying out yet, but there's no wind at the moment, either.
