30cm of fresh snow this morning to report. I said that yesterday as well didn't I? So that's 60+cm over the last 36 hours or so and over 1m of snow piling up around the village now. While people out on the slopes get out and enjoy their skiing and snowboarding, around town the locals are busy managing the snow and sorting everything out. It's a small price to pay!

The snow looks set to continue for at least another day or two. We might see a glimpse of the sun sometime around mid-week but after that snow clouds are back into New Year - though perhaps not the same kind of clouds that have brought us so much in the last few days.

It's a cold morning, minus 8 out there, and a bit of wind but it does not seem to be affecting resort operations with everywhere open this morning.

Official snow depths (26th Dec 11)
Utopia - 95cm
Chuo - 90cm
Paradise - 85cm
Uwanodai - 65cm
