It was a very mild day yesterday, and it rained as the forecast predicted.

The rain wasn't as heavy as it was last week so it didn't melt that much snow thankfully. However, the temperature dropped to - 10C at the village level this morning so snow has got fairly hard at lower levels. It should be a bit better up top.

The weather keeps changing from heavy snow to sunny spells since early morning but the wind is staying strong. The temperature won't get any higher than -8C today so make sure you wear an additional layer when going out today.

The next several days are expected to be snowy and cold.


Isola - 160 cm
East - 155 cm
West - 155 cm
