It was great to see 'proper' snowfall during the day yesterday at times.

By proper, I mean the kind of heavy snowfall that we take for granted here but has been something of a stranger this season so far. The heavy stuff didn't last for that long, often going back to lighter snow, but hopefully a sign of what is to come in the next few days... Was good to see more snow than was on the forecast as well!

It's a cold morning but the sun breaking through some of the clouds that remain and increasing amounts of blue sky on show.

My apologies I was not able to catch any updates the report made yesterday afternoon regarding fresh snowfall on the mountain but they have this morning increased the snow depths on all areas by 5-10cm. The webcams for the upper areas this morning are looking very inviting with some blue skies and sunshine up there and that new layer of snow. Should be good.

Hopefully things will be much better too with snow forecast every day from tonight to the end of the week at least - and at times particularly around Tuesday/Wednesday, significant snowfall is expected. There's a chance that the storm may start with some rain lower down here in the village but quickly change into snow.

We all go up to enjoy the snow this morning with great anticipation for what is about to come.
