The snow has just stopped, after adding another 40cm. Nice. Another day to hone those snow-clearing skills (another early morning; the sound of the rotary plow at 3:30 is the signal of duties ahead). But it's in the name of snow, so it's all good.

Nice and sunny this morning, although the clouds seem to suddenly pop into existence and cover most of the sky, and just as suddenly disappear. Interesting phenomenon....

Nothing more to add, except you really should get out there. One thing; did see a lot of sluffing of loose snow on steep slopes yesterday, and signs of similar instability today. Be careful going offpiste, as there is a lot of new snow up high, and much of it is wind-affected and possibly even a bit compacted (and therefore not so safe). Don't go alone; look where a potential slide would take you.
