Good morning from Madarao.

I remember saying yesterday that the snow might build up again, but that didn't last long and this morning the resort are reporting 0cm of fresh which seems quite surprising. I'm adding a few for what fell since my last report.

Look at the images below - the mountain is looking very tempting this morning with some blue skies and a bit of sun shining down in places from behind some of the few clouds left hanging on? It is going to be a fine, fine day.

And, perhaps a bit of a reset tomorrow with some snow forecast but I do notice the temps look set to be a little higher than they have been. We want them to keep down low right through until March, please.

Today the banks are back open and more people will be returning to work after their New Year break. I wonder how many will be taking the day off today...
