Well no sun just as yet as it is a cloudy start to the day here in Zao with perhaps 10cm or so of new snow to report. A cold one down to minus double digits earlier on but not much of a wind. Decent visability on the mountain too - as I write this I can just about see the top of the mountain from base here as clouds make a clearing..... and actually I can even see some bits of blue sky as well up there. Still a chance of light snow today and tomorrow though.

Taking a look at the forecast, it looks like we are going to have a period of clearer weather conditions starting Monday and towards the end of the week. We may get to see a fair bit of sun and Tuesday in particular looks like it might be quite mild out there. Even so, fingers crossed temperatures might stay on the right side of zero.

All the best for the weekend.
