Perhaps not as much as we hoped for overnight with just 2cm or so of snow in village which probably means 5-10cm in places on the mountain. A cloudy start to the day with the upper half of the mountain not visible from base areas but decent visibility on lower slopes. Just a light wind and quite mild this morning - just under freezing in village and up at the top of the resort it is only getting down to -5.

Light snow perhaps on and off today. Tomorrow is forecast to be clearer with the sun out from early on.
