Perhaps yesterday I was being led to be too optimistic about the weather misled by the forecast! It was raining yesterday afternoon unfortunately. It could have been worse but we never like to hear about rain mid-winter, it sure doesn't help!

No new snowfall to report this morning. It is a fine clear morning with lovely blue skies above the mountain and a temperature or about -4 degrees here in the village area.

Tomorrow should be fine too, perhaps more cloud, and definitely clouding over to start bringing us more snow into Friday. Still looking like Friday and Saturday might be full on snow storm with heavy snowfall and strong gusty winds. Hopefully not enough to stop lifts, but be prepared if you plan to be here over the weekend.
