Well, yesterday turned out to be a fine day out there - and quite a fair bit of fresh snowfall up there on the resort slopes as well. 10cm, and no doubt double that in places.... snow down to village level. It was like, is it really 3rd May?! Sorry for repeating myself but what a great bonus to be given. I don't think I'd advise people to plan their ski trip for May, but for those of us who are here...!

Anyway this morning slightly less cold, and it's mostly cloudy conditions to start the day off. Earlier fog seems to be causing less problems now. It doesn't look like we will be seeing much of the sun this Golden Week, with clearer skies forecast from Tuesday onwards.
