10cm of new snowfall in Zao village area this morning and a chilly -7 degrees temperature. Earlier on some clearer skies above and the sun was out though there's a lot of fast moving cloud up there which is blocking the sun right at the moment. Clearer conditions are forecast for today so maybe it will clear up.

No wind this morning and so conditions out there should be very good.

Similar weather conditions forecast into next week without much snow expected.
