Brrrrrr, very cold this morning. Mid winter cold. And we have 10-15cm of fresh snowfall as well in the village, so that and more probably on the mountain this morning. The top ropeway station is logging a temperature of -16 degrees. That really is mid winter!

At the moment it is cloudy, some breaks in the cloud, and hardly any wind at all. Which is surprising as we were expecting some stronger winds - maybe there are coming up later in the day.

Forecast for the coming week is promising in terms of continued snowfall and cold conditions - just need to keep an eye on the wind.
