Not so cold this morning just under 0 degrees here in the village and generally cloudy skies and a chance of light snow this morning - but not snowing now.

Weekend folk arriving from tonight and they can look forward to some sunshine tomorrow and then snow on Sunday.

Some fast courses at the moment with the packed and groomed snow.

Not sure why but it looks like the Astraea is not moving this morning... will try to find out.
