Pretty wild blizzard like conditions earlier on this morning. There's fresh snow on the ground - depending on where you are and how much the wind has got hold of it anywhere between 5-20cm. Outside my place there's 14cm.

Right now snow is still falling lightly and there's limited visibility out there. It's cold too, feels very wintery.

For the first time this season, the Sun Valley are is open this morning and a few more small changes as noted below. We need more snow to really get things kicking off though.

After today a clear up in weather conditions is expected for a few days perhaps. The next significant snow event it would seem will be with us just before and over Christmas...
