It was a cloudy day yesterday but some breaks in the cloud and the sun coming out at times.

This morning there is still a lot of cloud around but I can just about see the top of the resort from village base here.

It's -2C at the moment, no wind. No new snowfall since last report.

Next snow? Tonight by the looks of things and hopefully some decent snowfall on the way tomorrow.
