Good morning.

Yesterday was a day of thin cloud, hardly any wind. Fairly mild. Something like that.

This morning there is some light snow falling on the slopes, and some light rain falling in lower base areas. Light - it's not going to pile up and suddenly give us deep powder. It's currently around 1C and might get a little warmer later on so we'll just have to see how it will develop. And I will let you know.

Sunny clearer skies are forecast for tomorrow.
