Didn't think we'd see much/any snow this morning, after the stars were out last night in a clear sky.

But now we're seeing some blustery conditions, with a strong wind coming in from the north blowing snow, and about 3cm on the ground so far (can be hard to tell with the drifting).

Looks like more of the same today, before the wind comes down and it gets clear towards the weekend.

At least the freezing line will stay low until the next batch of snow (when it actually will move up the hill a bit). Still too much brush to make it great outside the ski areas, although some intrepid skiers are finding what open white spaces they can!
