After that amazing day yesterday, clouds are back with us this morning.

No wind, decent visibility and just cloudy really. It was around -2 degrees earlier on in the village and I have heard from a colleague who works for the resort that this morning is one of the 'warmest' of the season so far up at the top Gondola station. That still means that it is in the negatives, but still feeling relatively warm.

Still can't get over the weather conditions yesterday. Brilliant. This milder weather though isn't the best friend of snow so we can just hope that the temps remain as low as possible. Don't say it out loudly but there's a chance of rain later on tonight but hopefully that will soon turn into snow, and surely snow on the upper parts of the mountain, though we can't really expect any heavy snow conditions. It will likely clear up for tomorrow and then we have some more bright sunny conditions currently forecast for Sunday.

So, snow not as perfect as it has been but still decent snow to be found and lots of it and at least partly sunny over the weekend. Have fun!
