It is staying cold this morning - very cold actually - and the good news is more snow that perhaps we were expecting. Upwards of 10cm, perhaps 10-15cm on the slopes. A nice top up.

While this morning we have seen the sun from time to time, up at the top of the mountain it was still snowing early this morning but looks like now it is just cloudy. So the sun has been shining through from time to time but generally the clouds are winning out. There's a moderate wind out there this morning as well.

Forecast for the weekend is mixed - looks like it should be generally calm with a chance of light snow showers and a chance of the sun. Perhaps a bit like today. We'll just have to see what nature brings us!
