Quite a mild Saturday as temperatures in town nudge 0c. There is low cloud which is protecting us from the sun and preventing melt, but at the same time that cloud is sitting low on the resort. This combined with light snow falling means visibility is pretty poor out there at the moment. There is however a nice new 7cm of light powder sprinkled over the town, and likely double that on the resort.
