I don't know if it was just me but it felt really cold yesterday out on the mountains! A good thing, cold is good. It was pretty calm up there as well which made for a decent day outside on the slopes even if it's not 'deep powder conditions' (as I read someone claim yesterday... how do they have the nerve?!)

It's a cloudy morning and about -3C here in the village, so another cold start to the day. There's no new snow to report from base or generally from resorts, apart from Hakuba Cortina who this morning seem to be reporting 3-5cm of fresh.

There is a lot of cloud around but a few patches of blue sky to be seen as well, and some forecasts to predict some clearer skies and maybe some sunshine later on in the day today. It should keep quite cold though.

The forecast? Back to snow tomorrow hopefully and snow should be falling on mountain on and off through into early week, though some forecasts do warn of the chance of rain sometime around Sunday at village level along with slightly warmer conditions.
