Sorry for the later report, it's all happening this morning.

Snow storm. 30-40cm of fresh snow both seen and reported by some resorts around the area. There's more than that in places. Blown around by moderate to strong winds. Whiteout. It actually started off with pretty wet kind of snow last night but has turned into better quality stuff this cold morning.

It's a day to sit out for most people. And if you decided to go out in this lot, you may find limited options as a fair few lifts are still not moving as of 9:15am and may well not get open today. Extra caution needed in this kind of weather.

I'm going to sit it out - try to fight it with the snow blower at times - and wait until the sun shines tomorrow. That is going to be superb.

In the meantime, the more snow the better I say. Come on, bring it on.
