It's cloudy this morning and definitely colder than yesterday as we go back well into the minus and feel cold once again. There has been just a sprinkling of fresh snow overnight, perhaps a few cm or so in the village and it is not snowing now. Just cloudy really. The forecast has sunnier skies even for today so hopefully the clouds will gradually move on and leave us with clearer skies. Tomorrow looks like it should be clear and sunny as well for the most part, and also Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday...! In fact, it looks likely that the whole of the coming week is going to give us clearer skies and a fair bit of sun along with some mild temperatures as well. A bit of a worry to be honest as it is always good to see the next dump on the horizon but that's not showing itself at the moment. Anyway, there's nothing we can do about that so the best thing to do is just get out there and enjoy what we have now and remember the camera as there will be some memorable images to take over the coming days.

It's weekend and so the main ropeways in particular are going to be busy, especially with the decent weather forecast.

Have fun!
