Good morning Sports Fans! The present and forecast weather for today is for an overcast sky (you'll be in the clouds if you are more than 300 m above the valley floor).

Presently there is snow falling in such light amounts that it won't add up to much. There is more precipitation forecast for this evening.

Back-country travel report:

Yesterday a party toured up from the Tsuga Ike Lift Company gondola top station (1,580 m a.s.l.) to the Tengu Para (2,200 m a.s.l.). There we measured a height of snow (HS) of 200 cm in a fairly representitve place. We continued up in poor to fair visibility over varied wind affected snow on a generally western exposure. Ski penetration of 10 to 15 cm. From the top of Nori Kura Dake (2,436 m a.sl.l) we descended in similar visibility on a southern aspect with fair and some good skiing quality. We traversed the Tsuga Ike Shizenen and worked our way back to the top of the gondola station that we had started from. The snow quality deteriorated with loss of altitiude and the crust on the southerly aspects became very pronounced. The several creeks took care in crossing. This was no place to be alone.

Hazard Assessment:

Below Tree-line: low, but special mention of open and poorly covered creeks.

At Tree-line: moderate

Above Tree-line: moderate
