Good morning and welcome to the weekend. It's a very cold start to the day but I also bring news of another 15cm or so of new snow in the village which should be keeping things in tip top conditions for the weekend.

When I got up earlier I could see some breaks in the cloud and visibility on the mountain looked good. Since then it has clouded over somewhat and it's generally just cloudy at the moment with just a few breaks here and there from time to time. Sometimes that is a sign of things about to clear up... but, the local forecast tell us to pretty much expect snow for the day. Tomorrow might be a bit clearer and even though warmer conditions seem very likely in the coming week, it will still stay cold below zero.

Great conditions out there folks, and I think I am going to go out and enjoy them now. Hope to see you out there.
