Good morning from Madarao.

I can add some decent more snowfall this morning with a nice new layer of fluffy goodness on the ground. The resort itself is this morning reporting 15cm of fresh snowfall and I have just measured 18cm.

Snow is forecast to perhaps ease off during the day but more snow due overnight tonight - and hopefully it will be another good layer too. Come on..... we need more for those tree runs to get opening up.

Anyway, conditions should be suitably improved this morning and I think I need to go check them out.

Don't worry, I'll do it for you. Part of my responsibilities, you see. ;)
