There's not a whole lot to report this Monday morning.

Cloudy, no wind and a mild +1C as of 9am and it doesn't look like it's cold on the mountain either.

Hoping we can avoid some spots of rain before the snow that is due to be with us by the end of tomorrow. Temps should drop back down sometime tomorrow as well.
