None of the resorts have submitted snow reports today--maybe busy doing those end-of-the-month billings and reporting--but I'll give you the officially, me-observed data for the last day of January. We basically got just a light dusting of snow, after maybe 10cm of wind-blown micro-powder yesterday (tiny, tiny crystals that mean slow skiing). The temperature is currently -5.6°C according ot the outside monitor, and it is a beautiful, snny day.

Enjoy it while you can, because it looks like warm, rainy days for two days, and then winter comes back--a little scary for backcountry conditions, if a rain crust freezes hard and fresh falls on top. Not fun elsewhere, either, to be honest. Remember, cruising the piste is still fun and easier on the knees than ice chunks.
