There's just a slight dusting of snow to report this morning - I'll be generous and log it as 1cm rather than 0cm - and it's a mixed bunch of weather conditions likely for today. Actually as I write this the sun is peeking through the clouds. Temperature once again hovering around the 0C mark as of 9am this morning.

So we are now just a handful of days away from the first ski lifts starting up for the season. Hopefully. It's looking pretty good for that to happen as things stand but as always will keep you informed as we approach the weekend.

For many locals or people working here the beginning of the season is one of those times to get out and enjoy the snow - before the large numbers of people descent on the area making it difficult to get a chance to get out. I'll certainly be trying to make the most of the early season. Fingers crossed we can get off to a good start.
