Did I say snowfall forecast for today?! Well.... not quite! This morning there are blue skies all around. It's a beautiful morning. Keeping nice and cold and hardly any wind at all just a slight breeze really.

A really great day to be out on the slopes.

So the forecast got it somewhat wrong for today, but checking around they do agree that it should be snowing again by the end of the day today and over the weekend we will see a chance of continued snow showers and possibly strong winds. Let's see what happens.
