Record snows in Klosters and Zermatt this year.
http://www.elysiancollection.com/record ... -klosters/ nice little modeling scene....saw a picture of two guys standing chest deep in snow on the roof of a hotel, shoving the snow off....dangerous work. We've got nothing here in Toronto.
They said it was averaging 15cm per night last week.

Still relatively mild, just as well! The furnace went on the fritz and the new parts will be installed tomorrow.

The XC km count is past the 300 mark, really good conditions up on the mountain and no annoying snow clearing down in the valley. Now that's what I call B-) B-) B-)

The temp hit -13ºC this morning. Good thing our furnace is fixed. It would be very "crisp" with the North wind.

The ski area will be closed if and when the temp gets to -25ºC, yesterday at 14:00 it was at -22. :-o :-o

nasty attack of spring here, raining all day and both the heron and mole have returned, one to devastate the garden the other to ransack the pond.

Yeah, you gotta love wild life! :D :D
Our adventure with the raccoon family that found a nice cozy home in the roof overhang above the entrance was .... less interesting.

Went from -25C last week, to +11 on the weekend?! Today, I was almost at the resort to teach, when they called and cancelled due to the freezing rain and ice pellets pelting down from the sky....2 " of what feels like styrofoam underfoot.
Right around -2......winter for a few days, and now really bizarre weather....
Austria has had to evacuate resorts due to the extreme snow falls......very strange.

Haven't been up on the mountain since Saturday, way too cold! Beautiful sunshine, which is at least better than valley cloud.... as far as mood is concerned. 8-|

Two weeks on and the weather is still the pits. Had the BC Midgets championship on the weekend. Sunday they had to delay the start to 11:00 too cold and blustery.
When they asked my how I was doing (Tuesday at the dentists) I said "I have a severe case of cabin fever".
Getting the bill at the end of the visit didn't improve it, either! /:) /:)
