After the less than great start to the day, we ended up with some beautiful blue skies yesterday. :)

And a fantastic looking sea of clouds below us as well. Well, for those of us higher up on the mountains anyway (one photo from yesterday shown below, courtesy of Happo-one).

Sunny blue skies this morning with just a bit of thin high cloud in places... perhaps more of that as the day goes on, but it should be warm with a high of 15C on the local forecast for the village.

At last, it looks like we can look forward to generally fine and settled weather conditions in the coming week. Lots of sunshine lined up and hopefully clear skies, along with warmer conditions.

Proper late spring ski weather and what we might expect approaching the Golden Week holidays.
