Morning all.

It's another snowy morning here and I have 21cm to report which is about the same as the resort itself is reporting this morning.

Snow continues to fall and visibility is limited at the start of the day.

We're not expecting too much snow from now on and possibly even some sunshine tomorrow (maybe even later today?)

More snow due on Saturday and then in the first part of next week.

Regular snowfall. Sounds good!

It should be a very good day today. :)
