Good morning from Naeba! It's a bright and crisp morning up here and the sun is shining! We have been gifted 5cm of fresh snow overnight, which will freshened up the crusty pistes from yesterday nicely. However, there is a slight sense of disappointment and 'dust on crust' in the air... perhaps we have all already been spoiled this season by the fantastic snow we received throughout December!

There are a few low but light clouds clinging on to the mountains this morning, but it seems as though the sun will take care of those before lunchtime. The forecast suggests that we should expect light snow throughout today, however I'm not sure any moisture-bearing clouds will make it as far as the Mikuni valley during the daytime.

You may notice that the piste under Prince Gondola No. 2 has been closed for a couple of days now. This is because of the fabulous glide cracks which have opened up under the gondola during that warm spell earlier this week. As you may know, once these have formed there isn't much anyone can do to manage them, meaning this piste may stay closed for sometime. Fortunately, however, temperatures are expected to remain firmly below 0°C for the next few days, giving the snowpack a chance to reconsolidate and hopefully stabilize somewhat.

The forecast looking forwards still determinedly suggests snow through until as far as Sunday afternoon, however it doesn't seem as though there will be much accumulation. Temperatures will consistently remain below 0°C at the base of Naeba until after the weekend, meaning that any moisture which does get into the valley will fall as snow. The wind is forecast to remain light throughout the week.

Hareta!
