Good morning from Grandeco where there's some very nice powder on offer this morning.

Around 9cm recorded here at base with more the higher up you go of course.

The snow stopped falling this morning and actually now as this is being written some blue sky is appearing.

It's a very beautiful morning and suitably cold; I want to be out there right now!

The forecast remains good for steady and regular snowfall until around Tuesday and then more later in the week. I wouldn't expect a total clear up today with more snow later on more likely. We're still relatively low on snow of course so the more the better.

The advanced course 'Melissa' will open again from today.
