Heavy snowfall has continued. But the weather conditions - strong winds, all that snow, and checking for safety - are causing some problems at resorts with some lifts at most of the resorts either delayed or just not moving.

If you are out today, checking before going is a good idea.

Back to yesterday. Heavy snowfall in the morning and after easing off in the afternoon a bit, it was coming down again during nighta in the evening. There's varying numbers from around the resorts this morning, but basically... a lot.

Hakuba 47 are recording 40cm of snow since yesterday morning; 30cm at Cortina.

In terms of snowfall numbers, this mid-February storm is treating us really well. It's all great and exciting to get all of this new snow of course, but at the same time extreme caution is advised out there as all this sudden snowfall poses real avalanche dangers outside of the resorts areas. Today is really not the day to go exploring. There's plenty of untouched snow on the resorts courses this weekend - especially with the traffic problems that are still preventing lots of people from actually getting here.

The snow is expected to ease off today and while we might still have some snow showers, we might also get to see a bit of the sun later tomorrow.

Take care out there.
