Good news this morning. While I only have a bit of snow to report, looking ahead we have a heavy snow warning in place in the region with lots of snow forecast for the next 24 hours and beyond. Bring it on! Strong winds are already with us and likely to stay for the next few days - for the moment though lifts seem to be unaffected and operating as normal.

So, light snow falling now but heavier snow probable as the day moves on, and snow likely to be falling through until the weekend.
Would be good.

Just watch out for the wind, and colder temperatures over the next few days.
