Rain last night. Never good.

But, it is much colder this morning and we have a few cm of fresh snow.

It is continuing to snow now - along with some strong winds which are unfortunately stopping some lifts from operating, including the top ropeway. It's a shame that people coming for the weekend will get these less than ideal conditions.

Tomorrow should be much calmer.
