Good morning.

No cm of fresh snow to report this morning but it is snowing lightly early on and around -4C. Not heavy at all though and visibility looks generally ok this morning.

I would imagine resort operations are as they have been - almost all courses and 4 tree run courses.

Next proper snowfall looks due for around Monday and we can probably expect periods of sunshine before then.
