Sorry for the no show yesterday. I have got to admit that I thought I had posted a report and only just realised that I didn't now.

Yesterday we had 20cm of new snowfall in the village and add a bit to that yesterday (no new this morning) and that explains the numbers I have added below. This morning there's cloud above the resort but it's fairly bright and visibility is pretty decent. A cold -7 degrees in the village area, with -12 being reported by the Utopia area.

Less people around as well after a very busy 3 day long weekend.

There's a chance of some decent snow tonight into tomorrow morning. I will of course let you know about that tomorrow...
