It's a bit wild out there this morning.

Very cold and strong winds blowing about and poor visibility on the mountain - heck, even in the village - early on. Visibility has improved in the last hour or so but it is still windy and cold out there. We have had a few cm of snowfall overnight but that will be more or less in places due to the wind. Lifts are moving though but you might experience a bit of slow down here and there. Tomorrow looks like it should be calmer.
