It's a fine March morning with lots of people driving up to the village for the start of the weekend.
Going to be a quite warm day - and tomorrow - with our fair share of sun. There's some cloud around and they're forecast to stick around as well but it feels like the sun will win out.
Temperatures still going to drop later on Monday with that exciting looking forecast remaining in place for going into Tuesday. Just in case it's a false alarm, I'm trying my hardest to ignore it!
Well, I'm putting on my spring cap and going out to enjoy the snow. Hope to see you up there.
Remember, it's festival time tonight.

Fresh snow to report since yesterday (reported by resort):
