Coldest day of the season?

Might well be. -11 degrees outside my place and I am hearing that up on the top of the resort it has been closing in on -20 degrees!

A few cm of light snowfall to report but it is snowing now and we expect more today and tomorrow. Heavy snow likely over the weekend too as well.

Strong winds as well though at the time of writing it doesn't seem to be closing lifts as far as I can tell.
