The forecast was pretty spot on yesterday and this morning we do have some new snowfall to enjoy. Not a huge amount, just a few cm. But it's another fine morning. Lots of mostly white fast-moving cloud around, but a fair bit of blue sky as well. Not as cold up top as well by the looks.

So the outlook for the weekend? The latest forecast points to milder conditons with it getting especially warm on Saturday - even a chance of a bit of rain - to be followed by a return to colder conditions and stronger winds and snow on Monday.

Official snow depths (15th March 12)
Utopia - 265cm
Chuo - 230cm
Paradise - 265cm
Uwanodai - 180cm
