After being cloudy for most of the day yesterday it was snowing by evening and this morning there's about 15-20cm of new snow lying around the village. It continues to snow lightly this morning, which thankfully has not been quite as cold as the previous few days. Still way below zero though so not time to get the t-shirts out yet!

The mountain remains covered in cloud and so generally not good visibility out there and similar conditions look like they will continue for the next few days. Clearer weather for the weekend? Perhaps. We will just have to wait and see.

Utopia - 210cm
