I just couldn't bring myself to write a report yesterday, it was just too depressing watching the deluge wash away the snow. With up over 40mm of rain at village level and temperatures getting near 12 degrees pretty much all the snow on the lower mountain melted and washed away.
At least this morning it has cooled down and a little snow has fallen to the top of the village and replenished some of the losses on the upper slopes. The lifts though have closed again (you'd have to be pretty desperate to want to ski today even if they were open).
The outlook this coming week though is fairly positive with a good looking system expected to affect the region from later on Monday and reasonable snowfalls developing as the week progresses with temperature heading back down to what we'd normally expect at this time of year.
