It's Christmas Eve!

And there's some snow news after a wetter day yesterday.

Interestingly the resort themselves are reporting a pretty wide range of snowfall 10-30cm. Sounds like we need to get up to the top of the mountain to check out that foot of fresh snowfall up there. I am measuring close to that lower end here close to base. There's a bit of a wind today and it might get stronger later on.

But sounds good. But not as good as what is in store for later in the week - there is some serious snowfall due over the region. Yesssss!!

In the meantime we can enjoy what we have got including some sunshine tomorrow.

And perhaps even see Mr Santa on the slopes today.
