Good morning from the Urabandai area.

It is a beautiful quiet morning with some blue skies in places and a gentle wind.

The snow condition remain very dry due to the continued low temperature.

'Urabandai' means 'behind Mt. Bandai' and it is the area to the north of Mt. Bandai and a highland with high elevation. Snow conditions in the Urabandai area are generally drier compared with the area to the south of the mountain.

Nekoma is generally suitable for intermediates to advanced skiers. Grandeco is good for beginners and intermediate skiers. The photos for today are from Nekoma, Grandeco which is both located in Urabandai and Alts Bandai which is in the south area of Mt. Bandai.

According to the forecast, it should be snowing again tonight so hopefully I'll be able to report some fresh in my next report.
