I notice in the BBC web page it describes Svalbard as "just off" the coast of Norway? Eh? It's a bit fuerther than "just off"...

Hmmm blizzards, snowy mountain... so not all bad then. Think that people will notice is that there was snow, in this the supposed year without a winter if you believe some of the weather sites or more Alpine focused ski forums!

There's plenty of skiers/boarders in the Beeb. I posted a thread on the Gateway (BBC internal) site about Scottish Skiing recently and there was a lot of interest. But we are a big organisation and different departments don't necessarily talk to each other. I'd be more worried ,from Scottish Snow Sports point of view, if BBC Breakfast WASN'T doing this sort of story. At least Cairngorm is still on the radar. Just wait till the next big dump: all the Sat Trucks will be there and News 24 will be linking from the Ptarmigan.
