Walking home, after dinner, from Lynden Lodge to the staff hut, I found myself in a childlike wonder. Snow! Standing on the road, with the light shining a spotlight on nature's magical sprinkles, I did what we've all done before. Tilting my head back, my gaze turned upwards towards the stars that were hidden behind clouds. I watched as countless white fluffy flakes, tumbled down from the sky, white flecks scattered among black darkness. They were not just any snowflakes - they were the big fatties. Throwing both arms out to the side, I closed my eyes and felt that sweet frozen niblets tickle my nose and neck. A peaceful smile became painted on my face and pure joy filled my body. From the hair on my head - with specks of snow scattered among the curls - to the toes on my feet - feeling the gentle crunch of accumulated snow upon each step. Yeah that's right; we got snow people. Only a few 10 cm refresh for now, but Mamma Nature is slated to call in the heavies tonight. You know what else is going down tonight? NIGHT SKIING and LIVE MUSIC ! With any luck the snow starts falling early this evening and you get first tracks as it starts to dump. Snow Forecast is for 6 cm this afternoon, and 28 overnight. If you're REALLY clever you'll book accommodation tonight as well, ensuring you're poised for a face shot Saturday.
