Back to very un-winter like this morning as the thermomenter was at 7C even a few hours ago. Even high up on the resort this morning it is as warm as 7C and at base now we are seeing temps of 11C. Easily the warmest morning of the year.

It's a cloudy start to the day with most of the mountain hidden by clouds, though visibility on the runs isn't too limited by the looks of things.

A moderate to strong spring warm wind as well.

As today moves on it should quickly cool down and we'll be back in negative numbers overnight and tomorrow much colder, but it's a short cold snap as from Tuesday it will be warming up once again.
