Yesterday we had some clearer skies at times and this morning we start off with fast moving clouds but it is bright and the sun has been out at times. Clearing up?

Just 1cm of snow to report since last night and a -6C start to the morning. A fine day indeed on the mountain. We are back to normal weekdays now and so for the most part it's fairly quiet out there. More than enough of Zao to spread people around.

More snow likely tomorrow and Friday before clearer conditions over the weekend, according to the latest forecast.
