Quite a different sight from yesterday with bluebird skies today and temperatures already 10 deg.C in the Valley! Moderate winds out of the West at the moment, but could become strong as the day progresses. Great day for getting outdoors and the Spring ski/board conditions at the top of the resorts should be great. Don't forget to put on your sunscreen, bring your sunglasses and be ready to de-layer because they are forecasting temperatures up to the 15 deg.C mark today in the Valley,

This is the final day for many of the smaller resorts in the Valley but not to worry as there is still snow up high and Happo, Goryu and Tsugaike will remain in operation to get you there. They are even forecasting some new snow this week, possibly on Tuesday with temperatures dropping below zero, fingers crossed!

( See Backcountry Advisory Below ) Expect rain showers in the valley on and off this week with snow up top.

Avalanche Hazard:

Above tree line: Considerable

Tree line: Moderate

Below tree line: Moderate

Backcountry Travel Advisory:

With the high winds and new snows at tree line and above over the last week it is imperative that back country users be cautious around cornices and when on lee slopes. There were naturals observed mid week on Wednesday and Thursday in the alpine on East aspects. With the weather being as variable as it has been it is very likely that snows that fall over night are warming during the day and thus loose snow avalanches could be the result. With the hazard in the alpine at considerable it is likely that human triggered avalanches be observed and it would not be unusual to observe naturals over the next week as well. Take caution under steep rocky outcrops on solar radiated slopes.
Watch out below tree line in the river valleys as snow bridges are weak and the snow still hanging to the steep slopes on either side of these tight valleys is ready to fall with the continuing light rain and warm temperatures.
