As I write this report it is just cloudy but we may get to see some snow falling at times today.

No new cm of snow to report since yesterday.

It's a cold and reasonably calm morning (here in the village anyway), with good visibility.

More snow due over the next few days with the heaviest snow probably falling later in the day on Sunday. Looks like it might be another stormy situation, though if it's overnight then it won't affect lifts. That sounds like a plan!

Conditions should remain calm for tomorrow and again the chance of light snow falling and some forecasts saying we might also have period of sunshine.

Have a good one.
