Morning from Madarao.

A little earlier on I enjoyed some lovely scenery with the sun trying to break through thin cloud, with some light snow falling at the same time.

A calm start to the weekend. Excellent snow conditions for this Saturday morning with another layer on the ground since yesterday and temperatures remaining very cold.

There is night skiing available this evening and that will be followed by fireworks. Would be nice if the skies were clearer for that! Looks like it might be the case with clearer skies possible tomorrow.
