Snow kept falling during a day and night, now we’ve got another 20 cm of fresh powder! I hope that the ski resort opens lower area today. It’s not announced yet at this moment, but PLEASE!! It’s cold and windy again, don’t forget an extra inner and face mask.
More snow is forecast for tonight and tomorrow. Have a lovely powder day!
