And more of the same again today. Some wispy clouds in the sky here and there but generally blue skies and warming up nicely after a low of around 2 degrees overnight. Later on this afternoon or evening we can expect more cloud and then rain - hopefully once the lifts have closed for the day. If we are lucky, upper elevations may even get a sprinkling of snow overnight. In the meantime temperatures may rise to around 16-18 degrees this afternoon, so it's a warm one.

Tomorrow the forecast is for cloud with a chance of rain, perhaps snow up high, and a bit of sun added into the mix... so, anyones guess then!

Next week is looking interesting. Around Tuesday there's a decent chance of some proper snowfall. Now that would be good. Keep an eye on the weather forecasts that are on each resort details page on the site (links to the right).

Anyway have a great weekend. Weekends are busy, lines for the Happo Gondola in particular as it's the only way up to those upper slopes. That means an early start is recommended to avoid a wait.

Over at 47 and Goryu, there is still great snow cover down to the bottom of the resorts.

Have fun.
