Strong winds caused a few issues yesterday (in particular the Number 13 lift) but it was all in the name of fresh snow.

Some good snowfall during the day, and this morning I measure 14cm of fresh and the resort is reporting 10cm. It is a cold morning and generally just cloudy with perhaps light snow at times higher up. Less wind than yesterday and so things should be open as normal.

It's expected to clear later on though and tomorrow morning should see a sunny start to the day.

Next snow still due sometime on Monday and into Tuesday.

Should be very nice conditions this morning!

It is the Madarao Fire Festival is on Saturday (7th January) and starts at 8pm. There'll be lots of festivities going on including food and drink, fireworks from 9pm and 'taimatsu' (torch lit skiing) from 9:05pm. Let's hope for clearer weather for the event.
