The cold is holding on with both the official report (and the infamous and now less trusted car display) showing -5° this morning. A nice overnight fall of about 20cm of light powder; the sun was shining faintly earlier in the morning, but good, steady snowfall now continues.

Very nice, deep snow offpiste yesterday; a little bit of body but we aren't afraid of full-flavored powder in Myoko (aka, "anyone can ski that champagne stuff"). We did find a light icy layer down around 50cm, with progressively lighter snow on top. The forecast is for warming conditions, so be extra careful on south-facing slopes, valleys and other sketchy terrain as solar energy increases the possibility of avalanches if the layer isn't well consolidated with the new snow.
