Since that last snowfall we have generally been back in an autumn-like period of weather and today is another fine day. Unfortunately with the milder weather we have seen a fair bit of snow melt and it's very patchy now. So much so that even though the ropeways are running as usual, skiing isn't on the cards. It seems we will need to wait a bit longer for snow to arrive enough for the season to get going proper.

This morning it is 5 degrees in the village and sunny with some cloud.

Taking a look at the forecast, it looks like even at the top of the mountain it there won't be that much snow falling in the coming 6 days. Perhaps 5cm or so here and there (Thursday and Saturday) but nothing significant on the short range forecast as it stands now.
