Now this is a bit more like it. Everything is white again this morning, including the roads, and snow is continuing to fall. Not a huge amount, perhaps around 10cm or so, but hopefully we'll get more before it eases off.

A few more resort areas are opening up lifts this morning - details of which I have posted below. It's still very limited at the moment and we do need a decent delivery of snow to open up and really get into the snow season proper here. There's quite a lot of cars coming up to the area this morning with an almost constant stream of vehicles going past my window here near the Maruike area... the slopes that are open might get quite busy today.

Forecast tells us that this snowfall won't last long and there's a chance of some sun tomorrow. The forecast looks good for cold and snow mid week though.
