Good morning from Naeba! It's another cool, crisp and clear morning in the Mikuni valley today. The pistes are in fantastic condition and were topped up nicely with 6cm of fresh snow yesterday afternoon. Quite the squall came through yesterday between 3 - 5pm, snowing heavily for this period but subsequently blowing itself back out of the valley in the evening. For the remainder of today, we can expect the air temperature to remain well below 0°C, dropping to as low as -13°C overnight tonight. There could be some cloud and even light snow falling later into this afternoon. The wind will gradually pick up as the day goes on, but this is unlikely to have too much of an impact.

Looking forwards, we can expect another clear day tomorrow, with air temperatures creeping up far closer to 0°C than they have for a good few days. Following this, on Saturday, things will warm up significantly, indicating the imminent arrival of the next storm system into the Mikuni valley. The snowfall is currently predicted to begin overnight on Saturday with heavy precipitation. Snow will continue until at least Tuesday, as currently predicted. As this storm system settles in, the air temperatures will drop significantly again, back to being similar to the recent highs we have been experiencing of around -5°C. The wind is predicted to strengthen somewhat during this period, however current suggestions indicate that it shouldn't be a significant problem.

Taiyō!
