I'm afraid the snow didn't get too much later on yesterday as hoped and I don't have any new cm to report this morning. Not in the village but perhaps a thin layer of new out there on the mountain.

It's a cloudy start to the day but a cold one out there. Minus ten when I got up and the resort is reporting a coldest temperature of -13C this morning.

Looks like after today we are going to have a few days of clearer weather conditions and milder as well over the weekend. No huge snowfalls on the short term radar now.

Cold temps are keeping the snow in decent condition though.
