Good morning.

Hurray!

It sounds like there has been a bit of snow on the mountain - one of my secret agents is telling me 'up to a few cm' - though there is none down here at base to report. A few cm is hardly going to make a huge difference but it is still good to report, and at it is least good to have some colder conditions again this morning.

A cunning plan to investigate might well be required.

There is a lot of cloud around but now an increasing amount of blue sky appearing and the sun is out, so it is a nice morning.

However... it's windy too and most top lifts are on hold with a few more moving at reduced speed. Forecast looks like it will remain windy for the day so they might not get to open. Best to check with the resorts if that is an issue for you.

There is more chance of some snow over the next few days so fingers crossed we might even get to see some fresh on the ground.
