Looking out of the window this morning the vista was back to winter, rather than spring, with the village coated in a blanket of white. There is 3cm of new snow that has accumulated, but even though temperatures are negative the snow is wet and heavy. i would expect it to be lighter higher up on the ski area. It is light overcast conditions right now with good visibility, except right at the top of the mountain where there is some cloud lingering on the peak and rolling down a little.
