It is not as cold this morning with temperature currently -2C here in the village... and we're back to rather limited visibility on the mountain especially higher up.

There's 4cm of fresh on the ground here this morning since my last report.

Light snow is expected for the day today with heavier snow likely tomorrow and through into Sunday morning.
