The clouds lifter yesterday and we ended up with a fine afternoon - by mid afternoon the poor visibility of the morning in places had turned into nice clear views and all was calme. Before it went dark the skies went all 'silver' (sounds better than grey!) on us again.

Snow clouds moved in overnight and this morning it is snowing. There's a bit of snow on the ground with the resorts reprting varying amounts - Goryu 3-5cm, Hakuba 47 5-8cm, Cortina 2-5cm - so that should give you an idea.

It's snowing pretty good at the moment, nice big flakes, down to the village and the roads are getting a nice white covering. Drive carefully! Having said that, for now visibility on the slopes looks to be fairly ok - it's not totally whiteout. Let's hope these conditions continue for the day.

An easing off later on and we might get to see the sun tomorrow. Then more snow into Friday. More sun on Saturday, then more snow on Sunday. See a pattern here? All forecast of course, so we'll just have to see how it all turns out.

For the moment, fingers crossed we get a decent amount fall today.
