After the nasty winds and disruption of yesterday, things are thankfully much calmer this morning... and the four resorts appear to be opening as planned.

The weather yesterday has almost certainly cost us more snow though... it will be interesting to see how conditions have changed this morning. Resorts aiming to be open for another 2+ weeks, whether they can all hold out and do that is another issue.

It's a mix of fine and overcast cloud early this morning though the forecast tells us that there is a chance of a bit of rain later on.

Tomorrow should see a return of the sun which will be most welcome.
