Morning all.

I believe this report is going to appear late today (technical stuff) but I'm writing it at my usual time.

Sadly, with the rather mild conditions hanging over us we had some rain last night, but quickly moving on ;) there are some clearer skies this morning.

The two lifts are moving again this morning with more likely to open up once we get another layer of snow on the ground. And hopefully I will be bringing you news of snow in my report tomorrow morning.

(There's an ominous looking warm up forecast as we enter the coming weekend. Let's just hope the forecast changes before we get there).

In the meantime, here's to snow over the next few days and hope some of you can be here to enjoy it.
