Hmmm well not quite as clear as we might have expected today. The day started off another very cold -10 degrees in the village and no new snow to report today. Basically it has been a grey and cloudy one with some blue sky on show from time to time. Still the forecast points to a week this week of generally clearer skies, some cloud and the chance of light snow showers from time to time. A mixed bag then.

The forecast has been wrong it's fair share this season so far, so the best thing I can say with any certainty is that we won't be getting any rain or heavy snow in the next few days. ;)

Quiet slopes today after a fairly busy weekend.
