Morning Madarao fans!

I bring good news.

There's a nice fresh layer of snow on the ground this morning. 18cm of it. Nice.

(Especially after the milder day yesterday which didn't do the snow any favours).

And for the moment the clouds are breaking up and there's some sunshine and blue skies appearing. A fine morning to be out on the mountain.

Forecasts still show a warm up for later in the week which is a bit of a worry; once we get past that some more decent snow for Christmas?

I'm going to go and enjoy the morning.
