Hello and good morning to you all, my friends.

Although it really isn't a good morning. I'm going to keep my report short in protest at this weather. And hopefully shame it into getting better!

It's raining. I've had to adjust what is open in the resort specific details below with some lifts having to stop and some courses having to close. It's all a bit grim.

But hopefully - surely, please - it is going to be snowing very soon. Around lunchtime maybe? That forecast still does actually look quite promising.

So fingers crossed that come the time of my report tomorrow I'll be in a much happier mood and able to tell you all about decent amounts of fresh snow on the ground and up on the mountain.
