Good news this morning with over 15cm of snow to report in the village and more on the mountain. Once again winter stay with us and it is a cold cold morning - just before outside it was -7 degrees and I would guess it will be minus double digits once again on the top of the mountain.

The snow has stopped for now with decent visibility around but basically just cloud.
