And..... it's more of the same this morning -- I'm finding it hard to know how to say it differently at the moment!

Clouds are covering the mountain and snow is falling, more on the upper slopes and just at times lower down and in the village where we have just received a bit more.

Tomorrow of course is the start of the weekend and the crowded slopes. Come early to get up to the top and those first tracks. It looks like the cloudy/light snow conditions should continue over the weekend, so we will be lucky if we get to see some sunshine.

The weather will likely clear up somewhat by Monday and even more so on Tuesday when clearer weather is currently forecast. After all the snow and cloudy conditions of late, I think many people are actually looking forward to some clear skies. Especially those making the trip up to the top of the mountain at night to see the Snow Monsters - from tomorrow, the Ropeway will be going up there daily until late February.

Enjoy!
