'Getting cooler next week' we said in the last report and, yes, it certainly has.

This morning it's around 5 degrees or so and definitely a chill in the air and as the cloudy clear up a bit we can see that some more snow has appeared on the mountain tops. Perhaps down to around 1,100m or so.

Down in the village it's just cloudy really at the moment but there's a good chance that we will see some rain later on - perhaps a few more sprinklings of snow on the mountains again.

Looking ahead a bit more it should get warmer Thursday and Friday, some heavy rain perhaps on Saturday and then looking pretty good for snowfall later Sunday into early next week.

Happo is saying that this coming Saturday 19th is their planned opening date for this season, but unless there's some huge changes in the weather patterns in the next few days that is looking very unlikely!

But... what that mean though is that the ski resorts are ready and waiting and on standby for the snow to arrive. As are we all!
