Yesterday morning saw 20cm on my car park (posted in this report but falling through yesterday morning), base at the resort up to 140cm with 25cm falling up there.

Visibility was poor but today sees clear weather but winds were very strong up high this morning.

No new snow forecast for a few days unfortunately and it's warming up too.
