We didn't escape the rain, with it coming down overnight but I am glad to say it has stopped this morning.

At the moment it's very cloudy / foggy with poor visibility out on the slopes, well all but the lower areas anyway.

A mild +3C as the time of writing and a moderately strong wind.

Temperatures are set to plummet today though and hoping we might get a bit more snow.

Mixed weather conditions on the forecast for the next few days. They don't seem to be able to choose between cloud, snow and sun. Just as long as we don't get rain!
