5-10cm of snow overnight and Madarao have announced that there just isn't enough for a safe opening today.

Basically, they'll open as soon as they can which will be after the next delivery of snow.

When will that be? If only any of us knew.

Right now there's actually some blue sky appearing from behind breaks in the cloud. Everywhere is looking white. Well, apart from those blue clouds. There may be more snow on the way overnight tonight so we'll just have to see how that turns out.

Beyond tomorrow there's not a whole lot of snow on the forecasts into next week which is a bit worrying....

I'll update tomorrow with the latest.
