A late report today, on a sunny beautiful warm day. Not what you want to hear, but, ah... don't shoot the messenger.

It will be warm today and tomorrow, with the freezing level (that all-important 0°C line) predicted to go up to 2,500 meters. I don't know what that will mean at Lotte Arai, the one resort now open, as they're down to 72cm from 78cm yesterday. There is snow on the slopes elsewhere, but patches are already showing, and they need enough base to get the machines out and pack things down (skis and boards are good at scraping snow off the hill!). Hey, we're nine days to Christmas now, and I predict some happy news for the holiday. I hope, anyway.
