    Lots of bare patches showing this morning. Let’s hope they all get cover before the end of the day.

    I observe the kids have been offered the choice of training or a sleep in by the coaches today. The response really does sort out who loves skiing and who is just making up numbers.

    It’s a mix at PV now. Wet snow, hail and some r**n. Looks like it’s turning though. Can be like this in the valley and snowing up high around MT P during the transaction period....

    AXS has been pretty spot on with this.
