It feels like this morning's brisk breeze is out of the south and the temperature under cloudy skies is already 6º at the base, although still -1º toward the top. Slope conditions have deteriorated even more than yesterday and are pretty slushy. You may need a sled dog to pull you down the hill. Slather on the wax.

On the bright side, it's not very crowded even though it's still school trip season.

It looks like this morning's clouds are harbingers of rain later this afternoon. Visibility is good for the time being. There's still snow in the forecast over the weekend so maybe we can make up for some of the depth lost to today's toasty warm weather. There's a bit more snow in the forecast early in the week, but it's supposed to warm up again on Wednesday.

Note that Madarao has yet to update its data today, according to the tourism association.
