10cm of fresh snowfall this morning in the village on this calm but cold morning.

Light snow showers forecast for today and more volume of snow expected tomorrow and similar conditions will probably carry on into early Monday.

Once we get into next week that's when we might get to see one of those fabulous blue-sky days.

For now though it's all about the snow conditions on the slopes which are pretty good! Enjoy.
