Missed report yesterday but the accumulation of white stuff eased right off late in the Saturday's storm and about 5cm of fresh was all the previous 24 hours amounted to and there wasn't much volume to it but an excellent early season dump. Clear, occasionally cloudy weather yesterday, temps were still quite cool but today sees the sun shining bright and temps look like they will rise significantly.

The mountain forecast is out of kilter with heavy snow forecast tonight. Supposed to be sleet in town. let's hope the mountain guys have it right and there is snow on the cards there for three nights running. My fingers are crossed for a wet heavy one. Honshu needs to get some bushes laid down for Winter.

Was out on a beginner ski lesson yesterday but it felt so good to be sliding out in the mountains, still haven't been sliding sideways but the time is drawing near!
