It's a mixed bag of weather this morning. We've got it all - snow, sun, cloud, strong winds....

Earlier on it was -7 degrees outside in the village, so I suspect bitterly cold up on the top of the mountain. More importantly, more than 30cm of fresh snow greeting us on the ground. As the morning has progresses there has been more sun on show too and right now there are some shadows being cast on the lower slopes of the mountain while up top darker clouds are hanging on. Good visibility though for the most part and with the fresh topup once again - excellent snow conditions.

Today is the last day of the 3-day weekend and so busier than a normal Monday, though things should get quieter this afternoon and then we will be back to a normal weekday tomorrow.

A reminder about the evening "light up" operations.... tonight, Saturday, Sunday and Monday next week and then every day from 22nd January until 29th February. The Snow Monsters are coming on well and even now worth a look. Hopefully by the time the daily operations kick in, they will be looking suitably big moster-ish.

The forecast? Perhaps some light snowfall tomorrow but generally calm conditions, then more snow on Wednesday.
