A fine start to the day it is too! Warm too, in the village it is currently 7 degrees and feeling very spring-like. Up on the top of the resort, it is 2 degrees and they are reporting 5-10cm less snow than yesterday... the melt is on!

So basically similar to how things were yesterday.

Clouds will likely move in more this evening and may well bring some light rain with them overnight and into tomorrow morning when sunny spells are also forecast.
