Morning all.

After a wet day, there was some pretty heavy rain coming down overnight and it's raining this morning I'm afraid. :(

It looks like the Riesen Grat course isn't open for skiing this morning as they 'check safety' (official words), though they are saying you can go up there for sightseeing or climbing.

The snow on the lower base course at 47 has taken a noticeable hit, and the weather will surely have done so in other areas too.

Can we all manage to get through until the end of Golden Week (May 6th)? I'll keep you updated every day.

We are looking at clearer and sunnier weather come tomorrow and hopefully beyond.
