Good morning from Madarao and what a great start to the weekend.

Fresh snow (20cm being reported by the resort, 18cm measured by me) on the ground and a mix of blue sky, sun and cloud at the time of writing.

Excellent.

It's perhaps not the driest of peak season snow quality, but we are approaching mid-March! (I feel bad even kind of mentioning that). ;)

That's about it really. Should be a great morning and tomorrow fine weather is forecast again.

AND... there's snow on them there forecasts mid week.
