A tale of two visibilities this morning. Good lower down and limited up top with clouds covering the top of the resort.

No new snowfall to report this morning and some fine weather is expected today... and indeed tomorrow as well.

Looks like warmer temperatures are forecast for the end of the coming week - they were even mentioning the 's' word on the news last night (spring). We are way, way too early to be even contemplating that, so I refuse to believe that it's anything other than a blip!

Forgetting that for the moment snow and winter-like temperatures are forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday, so fingers crossed that brings with it some good amounts of fresh snow.
